As mentioned previously on this list, I would also like to develop a plug-in
with similar pixel coordinate requirements. For my purposes, using the
color picker would be an extremely ugly and practically unusable hack. I

as in click on button on plug-in's user interface to initiate pixel
selection, then click in image (or preview?) to return coordinates to
