I appreciate the time you and Mark Wieder spent looking into that -
I just ran another test this morning to verify that the setup works
reasonably well, and after I get some client work out of the way I'll
post some notes on it.
In the meantime, another option just occurred to me which may be simpler
and more complete:
What happens when standalones are run with -ui, and can that flag be
added to LC Server?
If -ui not only bypasses font init but all other graphics init (like the
Skia subsystem, buffering, etc.) it should be a far better solution.
And since -ui is already supported for standalones, my hope is it would
be simpler to make it available for LC Server than any new flag which
would require a new implementation throughout.
