So why are the old sinc interpolators so large? I even think I can see a
difference between sinc256 and sinc1024...
BTW.: My favourite printing program - QImage - uses so called Vector and Pyramid
filters for upsampling. They are far superior to lanczos for that task. Wouldn't
they be an alternative for simple resampling, too?
