[Glass] Obex status?

Sorry for the long delay ... TL;DR, Obex is not ready to be used ...

Long answer:

The master branch is in the middle of a major rewrite that was aimed at 
two things ...

First the GsBitmap API in 3.4 had changed since I initially started work 
on Obex and I was making a  pass through the code cleaning up the usage 
of GsBitmap.

Second, I realized that an object/pipe-based model for Obex commands 
would work really well, since as I was playing with Obex a lot, I 
realized that you typically ran through similar sequences of 
transformations while tweaking filters and what you wanted to see and of 
course the object pipe in tODE fits well in that model ... but that 
meant that I needed to revamp each of the obex commands and strip out 
the custom transformations and put them into their own command

I think I made my last commit into Obex sometime at the beginning of 
last year, before I was completely consumed by the indexing work for 3.4.0.

When I saw your mail (2 months ago now:), I thought that I would be able 
to find a commit that you could use ... since Obex was basically 
functional before I started working on the object pipe model ... I spent 
some time setting up a stone and installing Obex and paging the work 
that I had done back into my mind ... I actually got to the point where 
I had found a commit that I thought that would work, but when I began  
running the examples, in a current 3.4.1 release, ran into issues and 
thought that I might be able to get a basic example to run ... and then 
I ran out of time to the extent that I stopped imagining that I could 
respond to issues that took more than a few minutes to address ...
