[SciPy-user] Gaussian pyramid using ndimage

I *think* that all of the filters in ndimage proceed by pre-filtering  
and then doing whatever task is required, so even if there was a  
downsampling filter (maybe 'zoom' would work), it wouldn't be memory- 
efficient in the way you were hoping.

Also, the spline filters used by ndimage for pre-filtering seem  
somewhat broken:
