Going out on a limb, but I'd suspect this may be an extension of Y!M

Then again, that's how I'd do it - a whiteboard extension - because it
would seem at the surface to be the sensible approach. But Y!M being Y!M
probably means it's not done like that at all within that protocol ;)

My 2c: I'd suggest looking at the Pidgin Whiteboard API as well as the
the current state of the XMPP Whiteboard[1]. From there, other prpls
could implement the functionality via plugins or within the prpl direct
once it's established how the protocol works with pictures within their
own whiteboard.

[1] No, I have no idea, sorry.
