Oh, I was not suggesting integration with preview.el: preview.el is
very much specialized to LaTeX.  I was just suggesting to pick
preview.el for ideas and code fragments.  For example, the Ghostscript
queue management and the display prioritization would seem like good
candidates for stealing: their design and coding took quite a bit of

It sounds to me like Tassilo addressed some performance/usability
