FWIW, waypipe is not intended to be the most efficient network
streaming protocol, but it is intended to be a direct Wayland protocol
proxy (X11 forwarding, anyone?), which means that it needs to be able to
transmit also dmabuf buffers as is. It does not want to understand
modifiers but just send opaque data.

It may or may not do lossless compression of the data it sends over the
wire, but it will replicate the dmabuf on the remote end.

Or so I'm told.
