I hate their do-it-our-way compulsory js but the content is great,
better than the Gimp distro docs.  Guess I'll lug the laptop to the
library in Bilgewater and d/l the 40 meg "book" in the hope that I can
defeat the js once I have it on my HD.  Thanks for the pointer.

Yes, and a lot of stuff about panorama stitching that I didn't need,
too.  I was hoping for a command line tool that would do the whole
works without supervision.  But, with extra clues from kindly NSLUG
gurus, I was able to do the first 20 images with minimal pain.
Stitching the original 200 dpi scans worked great and scaling to 30%
elided the few small errors.

If anybody's interested, these images are from a portfolio of drawings
of late 17th and early 18th c. English ironwork -- the kind of stuff
that Daniel Waterhouse would have seen his buddy Sir Christopher Wren
putting up with the help of Jean Tijou after the Great Fire. :-)
