Xpra: Ticket #1124: interleaving network packets

Some packets can be quite big, in particular 'paint' and 'file-transfer' packets.

It would be nice if we could chunk them to allow other types of packets through without delay. ie: allowing sound packets through more quickly, which would keep the client's sound queue at a lower level and is better for achieving sound sync (#835).

This is very likely to overlap with UDP (#639) and file chunking (#1026). It would be nice to find a solution generic enough to work with both TCP and UDP.

Things to think about:

#1026 was done a different way because it really is special, so now we can delay this ticket - which is much more difficult and should probably only be done after UDP and other network tweaks, if ever. If needed, we can handle large paint packets by splitting the damage into smaller regions, which will then travel in separate packets.
