To chime in support - after hearing about the xwidget branch a few
weeks ago I gave it a shot, and found it was functioning pretty
nicely. I didn't get a chance to study the internals, but as Joakim
said, the overall experience of using inline widgets is very similar
to that of inline images.  (The main xwidget branch, although not
cleaned up for merging like xwidget_mvp, provides a variety of
different widgets to try out. Some widgets work better than others.)

One use case that comes to mind is a Company-style visual completion popup.
