The patch is large I suppose. It mostly affects the redisplay system.

I have maintained it in its own branch for a couple of years. I can
continue doing that in master, or in its own branch indefinitely. 

The feature is useful in roughly the same way that image support in
Emacs is useful. I find it useful during web-development and the like.

You can use it for browsing random sites, but thats not the primary
