Kate is a codec for karaoke and text encapsulation for Ogg.  Most
of the time, this would be multiplexed with audio/video to carry
subtitles, song lyrics (with or without karaoke data), etc, but
doesn't have to be.  A possible use of a lone Kate stream would be
an e-book.  Moreover, the motion feature gives Kate a powerful
means to describe arbitrary curves, so hand drawing of shapes can
be achieved. This was originally meant for karaoke use, but can be
used for any purpose.  Motions can be attached to various semantics,
like position, color, etc, so scrolling or fading text can be
