Do you think it should be a new optimizer ('v' line) flag?  That would seem logical, since this is really an optimization option. However there is no new optimizable variable to go along with it.

Adding another var to the 'p' line might be nice, just because that line is not already overloaded with vars.  That would disallow mixing polynomial modes in projects using multiple lenses, but I wonder if anyone would care?  Indeed, I think that might be the best policy...

I'd really like to enable this option only for projects involving lens-based images.  But I don't know if libpano has a sufficiently high-level view to determine that.
