[OT} is WebP going anywhere, and if it is how will LiveCode cope with it?

WepP doesn't really offer anything over JPEG, I honestly can't see any reason for it to take off.

File sizes can be slightly smaller, but it has the same bit depth, *smaller* pixel dimension limits, doesn't appear to include a progressive download spec like JPEG, doesn't include an alpha layer for transparency like PNGs etc. etc.
