I had C/X11-Code that was dealing with this, but it's on my MIPS RC3330
system and on My Amiga3000UX, unfortunately those systems are at my parents
house and I have no access to them before one month at least. The code had
no license but I think it belongs to my hi-school (EPITA). My bigest regret
is that this software died before it was released, and if a see some of its
inovative features re-born in krita, it'll be a great pleasure. (Anyway, I
think that extracting the code is not a big deal as it has never been used
since 10 years and more over, I'm the author of those specific

Sure, but I also have to find time for that...I've also a game to port from
