The Wikipedia article certainly was over my head.

 From what I read on the Gimp bug page lanczos scaling is not yet 
perfect. (But then what is?)

I have to upscale images from 16M to 48M and it seems the client takes 
them apart and looks at them through a microscope and rejects them if 
there are signs of sharpening or interpolation artefacts.

So far as I can see, my Gimp (2.4.0-rc2) does have lanczos downscaling

Thanks for your help,
