I don't remember the actual math involved and didn't try to follow
your elaborate code path description. When I implemented this it
was pretty clear from the beginning that -100% 'L' would have to
make the image all black and +100% 'L' all white, and all values
in between would be linear interpolations. That's how it was
implemented in the end.
No voodoo involved :-)
The only point potentially open for discussion would be what
the proper word for 'L' is.
