The approach of using energy (I wonder that really means entropy) 
approach to finding "boring" seams through the image is very clever. The 
first thing to find out is whether any of this has been patented yet. If 
it has, then there are probably other approaches to identifying 
interesting areas of the image - graph-cut algorithms or other 
feature-identification systems. It looks like the sort of thing Paul 
Harrison (author of the Resynthesizer plugin) would be able to knock up 
in a lunchtime or too :-)
