I always was aware of this, tried it some times. Always wanted to use it 
someday. However all projects I did so far using Blender from 
commandline to deliver images from a server (imagine the user 
customnizes a product and gets it back as rendered image preview) used 
to call Blender via command line and processes the returned by PHP...

BTW: I just tried Frameserver and it still works.

Is it really helpfull to remove? I would not remove it until it gives a 
real advantage or the size of Blender would shrink a resonable amount. I 
still think it can be usefull ;-)

BTW2: It would be nice to return PNG or JPEG or whatever Blender offers 
;-) PPM is just too old.
