BTW, Martin, I'd suggest optimizing it -- 1 second/megapixel is a fair
amount of time for someone processing a lot of 18 MP images, and people
with Nikon D800's will be even more unhappy.  You may also want to talk
with the ImageMagick folks about getting it included there.  This could
become a very important part of a photographic workflow.
