Thanks, both patches applied. Your name now appears 12 times in the
SVN logs, would you maybe want an account? They're free, and you can do
whatever you want (except complain when your changes are refactored
beyond all recognition for arbitrary reasons).

Yeah, you're guessing correctly. Ideally, the image-to-text algorithm
should be a combination of halftoning, block error diffusion, photographic
mosaics, all this in real time. It has never been done at this scale and
I still don't really know what the final thing will be like. I'm mostly
writing the document to understand what I'm doing.
