	Mipmapping approaches seem to have some 'issues'...
In order to obtaing something close to full sampling (and thus 'good'
results), one needs more than just (1/2,1/2) factors.. which means
a somewhat more complex 'mipmapping' approach. But perhaps one could
make this work satisfactory.

	Again, it's odd that such an important aspect of comp gfx
hasn't been covered in great detail before, with some (maybe many)
satisfactory solution to 'high quality' image transforms being well
known in the field.
