Okular tiled rendering manual

Mailson Lira has written a nice webpage explaining how his tiled rendering work for Okular works.

This is still not merged for 4.10 but we hope to get it ready by then.

And of course thanks to Google for his Google Summer of Code program that allowed Mailson to work on this project.

Seems to me that more and more applications are getting tiles. So far I know about Marble and Okular, but I know that Calligra also wants it.

Are these implementations very different for some reason or are they basically the same? Perhaps the tiles could be extracted into a library to be reused in yet more applications.

The implementations are hard enough being tailored to specific apps, making them generic is either "impossible" or ultra hard and not really worth.
