Subject: wps-tool wanted

wps-tool wanted

Hi all,
after reading the coming release notes for 2.5 I saw this among the
news listed for this version:
"Image support for the WPS, introducing a new format :) %xn|filename|
x|y| for example: %x0|test.bmp|10|23| the example will load /.rockbox/
test.bmp as image 0 on position 10,23"

As you can all see, this looks like a bad joke regarding usability.
But at the same time, this is the most flexible way to work with
pictures and text, pixel by pixel movements.

To make this usable, somekind of tool should be made. I wonder if it
even might be possible to make it in javascript? I remember years
ago, probably two, there was a WPS-creator someone coded in
javascript. Since I've since long forgotten the art of coding, I can
only send out this little beacon: someone, find that old webpage,
update it to make it work with all the new WPS-features including the
BMP support. This would be the killer app for all of us that love
putting together wps's.

Just a suggestion to someone.
