1. A question: what ImageMagick file is needed?
   http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=24099
   (I.e., what do you get out of "dynamic"?)
   Comment: ImageMagick seems very RAM intensive.
2. I do not see the shell requirment.  Is that just your 
   recommendation?
3. Are you using it on Windows?  If so, how's it going?

Thanks,
Alan Isaac
