Hello everyone,

As many are aware, we took up the issue of surface/memory allocation at 
XDC this year.  The outcome of that discussion was the beginnings of a 
design proposal for a library that would server as a cross-device, 
cross-process surface allocator.  In the past week I've started to 
condense some of my notes from that discussion down to code & a design 
document.  I've posted the first pieces to a github repository here:


This isn't anything close to usable code yet.  Just headers and docs, 
and incomplete ones at that.  However, feel free to check it out if 
you're interested in discussing the design.
