We already have convolution code in the core.  However, it uses the
copying technique, and doesn't deal with tile boundaries at all (much
less image boundaries).

I do think a proper tile-based convolver is needed, and I think the
developers would support such a move.  Unfortunately, I don't have the
time to co-ordinate this :(

I think there is support.
