Greetings comrades.

I have removed the w3img support from st due to this breaking our fps
code in st. The old patch did allow drawing whenever some event came in.
Copying over the whole buffer in one event is more efficient. If you
need images to be displayed, keep a sane image viewer and run it through
your tunneled X11.

If you need such a support, try to modify w3mimgdisplay to run separate
escape codes, so some area is left over from being copied over. This is
more leaner and easier than just overwriting areas the terminal knows
nothing about. But this gets us back to the discussion of GUI extensions
to the vt100 world. Don’t rape it even more.
