I was thinking of a situation where you could, for example, keep updating a
FITS file with images from the telescope and send a "image.load.fits" SAMP
message each time a new image is ready. It would be easy to implement, but
a custom solution might be required (or just a custom SAMP message, if the
performance is good enough). We did this sort of thing in the past with
Skycat and mmap'ed FITS files or image data in shared memory.
