Thanks. Just push stuff to mainline master as appropriate, there is no
big point in keeping stuff that we want in a personal clone somewhere
unless it is broken/experimental.

I've started working on viewer-class support for Qt now, sponsored by
my employer Openismus. The Qt specific code is here:
Everything that is not Qt-specific will go into libora so that the
code can be reused easily by other things. Like the gdk-pixbuf stuff I
hope to do later.

I plan to introduce a new header and .so file (name: liboraview?) for
the viewer-class API. This because I hope we can reach maturity for
this use-case fairly fast, and thus API/ABI stability. I do not think
we are able to do that for more complex use-cases like the ones which
require access to each layer any time soon, hence the separation.

I'll report back when I have something that is starting to become
useful. Feedback appreciated.
