Thanks, see a few comments below.  Please push this regardless, it's a
huge improvement.

Let me finish my attempts to use the matrix as-is, I have one more
attempt in queue.  After that, if I fail, moving the matrix
calculations into image_set_transform would be a necessity, as all the
alternatives I could think of are much uglier.

I agree, but please make sure the slices are indeed a 100% replacement
(I cannot yet do that because I don't have a working :crop support to
try it).

Thanks, same here.

One more space there.

Either we use a column vector, and it should be on the right of the
matrix; or we use a row vector, in which case it should be on the
left.  Which of these is the case?

This is great, but Windows only supports displaying images from files,
so we will have to write these specs to files, and then display them.

Thanks again for documenting this stuff.
