The retinex plugin is not documented. (As far as I can see?) What do the
different parameters to it mean? Even after looking at the paper it is
supposedly based on (multsclrtx.ps) I don't understand the
parameters. There are many different retinex algorithms based on
widely different principles; it is true that this one and the McCann
one are similar in some respects.

Obviously, I experimented with it a few times, but I couldn't get it
to work before I gave up.

The objective of my implementation of is to brighten dark areas of the
image while preserving detail, and it has a very noticeable effect.

Compare the outputs. Probably the best way to use my code is to select
the non-flatten option and adjust the opacity of the retinex layer
