1600x1200. I haven't tried a lower resolution, though the thought did
cross my mind.

Tell you what...I'll email you the code I have tomorrow after I take
another hack at it. It should be pretty complete, I'm probably just
getting some of the calls wrong, and I might not be saving some state info
correctly between passes. Patching up what I have might be a little easier
than doing it from scratch. Or you can just toss my code in the bit bucket
and do it yourself :)
