I've written my own placeholder image generator based on Delaunay triangulation inspired by this blog-post. The generator produces reasonable placeholder images at about 300 bytes. The overall effect is not as nice as the images produced by Primitive though. However, Delaunay triangulation is deterministic and relatively fast. Furthermore, the triangles can be efficiently serialized as triangle strips.

In case anyone is interested, the code is on GitHub [1].
