At the moment I think it is easier for me to maintain a separate
utility that does one thing but does it well, than to integrate the
functionality I need into imagemagick sufficiently seamlessly to
satisfy my technical pride.

But thaks for pointing out that imagemagick does have some support for
layers. This wasn't apparent to me the first 20 times I read the
manpage :-)

(In related news, an xcftools package is now in the NEW queue).

Henning Makholm               "... not one has been remembered from the time
                         when the author studied freshman physics. Quite the
            contrary: he merely remembers that such and such is true, and to
          explain it he invents a demonstration at the moment it is needed."
