On an Android device, when you download a file via mobile browser, you are
typically no more than a swipe and a tap away from opening the file. Since
Opaque is registered to handle the file, there is absolutely no break in
the flow, and there is at most a 2 - 3 second delay between downloading and
tapping on the file.

Therefore, I still think we're in business! :)

I plan to add such extension to remote-viewer (spice-gtk), using a special

Sure! Christophe's libgovirt is written in C, and uses librest. However,
libcurl should work just fine.


The conscious mind has only one thread of execution.
