Xpra: Ticket #491: webp is leaking memory
See ticket:457#comment:30 - this is a client side leak only (I think), which affects all platforms.
Probably keeping references to some buffers somewhere (
Fix it so we can actually use webp (and fix #487), and use it for more things. (ie: #419)
r5167 adds a big warning for anyone trying to use webp, will need to be removed if/when we figure this out

changed from 0.12 to 0.13
re-scheduling all webp stuff
Sun, 30 Mar 2014 08:33:40 GMT - Antoine Martin:
- leak fixed in r5945
- remove leak warnings and re-add webp as a valid lossless encoding to switch to in r5951
- refuse to use webp unless the client tell us it is not going to leak in r5955
All will need to be backported.
webp support via PIL was added in:
- r5937 for encoding
- r5936 for decoding (r5953 ensures we don't use Pillow for decoding webp for now - we can lift this restriction with a version check once upstream fixes the bug)
Pillow also leaks like we used to! (see r5952)
Bug reported upstream: Pillow issue 586

set to fixed
Backports for v0.12.x in r5956. Closing.

Note: the new
webp cython encoder in 0.13 was also leaking memory, this is fixed in r6505.
