Right. And that is pretty close to what the scaling code does. It also
averages 2x2 pixel squares until it gets close enough to the final size.
The last step differs though.

But we have discussed the downscaling code before. Let's not start this
again. Instead of going through this discussion again, please read the
thread in the archive. Then please sit down and write a patch that
implements proper decimation.
