I'm sorry for not contributing much of anything, but I have a question:
In what way are you providing for a framework so that remote 
controlling through for example the VNC protocol can be made as fast as 
painlessly as possible?  Today that involves doing a memcpy() from the 
pointer received from a BWindowScreen at a high rate, but this scheme 
could be vastly improved if the background buffer used for drawing 
could be shared and apps could subscribe to update messages, or through 
other means.

Thanks in advance,
Mikael Jansson
