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
