Keith, AFAICS the standard properties do not inflict any changes on
server code except for the naming of the EDID data property, so I assume
that's fine here.
I'm unsure whether it would be wise to include panning support in 1.3,
even given that I manage to put it together until 11/24. I guess it
should settle in master first.
In that case, do we have any protocol changes in 1.3? Do we need a
version bump then?
