I've heard a little about the upcoming pixbuf which is a
replacement for imlib.  Will it have the capability to load images from
memory just as if they were a file?  Imlib doesn't seem to be able to do
this.  I really don't like the idea of having to download an image, then
in order to display it write it to disk then load it again.  Will
sufficient functionality to avoid that be in the PixBuf routines?  Btw,
will the pixbuf routines also make life really easy in terms of reading
many different image formats and having fallbacks like imlib did, as well
as being colordepth independent?  Thank you.
