@Jdlrobson: Is Watching really the right place for this since you're trying to get the change merged?

Also, y'know, good luck!

@bmansurov @pmiazga and I have agreed to focus on the rendering code and drop work on this since it doesn't help our cause so this patch is probably as far as it will go now sadly unless @cscott or someone else has bandwidth to help. We will watch it until that happens. There is a lot of work here to be done.

Removing task assignee due to inactivity, as this open task has been assigned to the same person for more than two years (see the emails sent to the task assignee on Oct27 and Nov23). Please assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically [plan to] work on this task - it would be welcome.
