I thought this might be of interest to Cairo developers: We're working on
some extensions to SVG to enable continuous remote content manipulation.
Think X Windows without the windows.

We're developing an app framework (for flash-drive-based apps) that
supports multiple clients viewing the same content, via a protocol we've
dubbed "SVGTerm". It enables updates to SVG content on connected
"terminals" from a master SVG "scene" which is manipulated by one or more
"host" apps.

We'd love to get feedback on our approach, and chat with others doing
similar things... More info and prototype download (with source) at
