The way xpra handles pixel transfers is quite different from your normal
WebRTC video transfer: xpra sends only what has changed, in as small a
chunk as possible whereas most WebRTC application usually send a video
or audio stream.
WebRTC could still be used as a transport, layering xpra's protocol on
top of it. (the xpra protocol has a lot more data flowing than just the
audio and video)

At present, neither is likely as there just isn't enough time available
to work on those features.
