I would suggest that you and David fix a close deadline for David to look at it more closely. He knows the code best. I have barely touched it since it came out. David, if you do not feel you have the time to commit, please tell us.

I should be able to look at it some time in the next week. I have a more pressing deadline with coding I am doing for Damocles (which has "real users") that I need to focus on first. I'm afraid that I can't be more precise than that.

You know, I am amazed that that feature extraction code has survived as long as it has. It was only ever done really as a very quick and dirty proof of concept for the SCIA'99 paper :) I guess it was "good enough", so it lasted.

I agree that I would prefer to see ImageMagick retained, though perhaps by linking to their libraries rather than making system calls.
