The latest image.tag on CVS has some really good documentation in it.  It
seems like it's more for the display of images than the manipulation of them
though.  I think I could get away with using it for the minimum of what I
need, but it would be much better to use something that really exploits
Image Magick.

The image-store UserTag Jonathon Clark posted
html) sounds perfect but it didn't post properly or something.  Does anybody
have a copy of that tag?
