I'll have to get a grasp of the system context first, but it's definitely something I could write, so I'll tentatively take this on myself :)

The relevant documentation is here: https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/AXIOM_Beta/AXIOM_Beta_Software#Overlay_Images

I can help test anything you created on a Beta, Herbert on IRC can help answer software/script/format related questions.
