<<... from the URL: CinePaint cannibalization whatever CinePaint [was: Film

CinePaint is more versatile than 48-bits RGB. It handles 8, 16, or 32-bits
per channel, which means 128-bits of RGBA. To handle OpenEXR, the new
ILM/NVIDIA Half float 16-bit format, requires CinePaint use 32-bit IEEE
float internally because we don't handle ILM Half float. OpenEXR 16-bit
float images are promoted to 32-bit when loaded.
