Unlike the version of rgb2ntsc, rgb2gray should return the same data
type as the input image.  On the image package, that happens with the
imcast/im2X functions but they are not in core [1].  Not sure how to
best handle this in core without having those functions duplicated.

Also, despite what Matlab says on the documentation, they don't seem
to use that transformation matrix with only 3 decimal cases:

    >> T = rgb2gray ([1 0 0; 0 1 0; 0 0 1]);
    >> T(:,1)
    ans =

so might be better to had a few more decimal cases.  At least so it's
compatible with the existing function in the image package.

Finally, the reshaping back to the original shape can be done with the
existing private function colorspace_conversion_revert [2].
