I notice now that we've been having this discussion on the wrong list
-- oops!  We're nearly done, though.

I fixed the overflow issue in SVN.  I'd appreciate it if you could
test and let me know whether everything works as expected.  The output
values are now simply clipped to the bounds of the numeric type,
i.e. UInt8 to [0,255] etc.

As for the values at the edges, I'm still working on it.

Since we have a fundamental problem with the spline filter approach at
the borders, we may also want to look at subdivision interpolation
schemes, like the one described in this article:
