OK, thanks for saving me wasting my time. ;)

This discussion about decimation<>interpolation needs to be picked up  
again once 2.4 is out.

I'll still see if I can finalise the lanczos code for downscaling since  
that routine will need importing into GEGL and it should at least be  
theoretically valid.
