A new window in the Eve client, movable, stackable, pinable, hideable etc. just like all the others. Background is semi-transparent, and there is no content whatsoever. It is completely empty. 100% blank.
However, the client writes to a text file somewhere some details of the window: size and position (in screen co-ords), visibility, state (pinned, stacked), the current Eve client colour scheme and anything else appropriate.
Third party overlay products, such as a Teamspeak overlay, can be modified to monitor & read that file and modify their behaviour accordingly. You can now move your Teamspeak overlay around like any other Eve client UI window.
It might be nice to support several of these windows.
