:) Do you use lines and items, or construct arrays from the imagedata?

Great idea. Not sure what a real world test would be - but how about basing
it on Andre's Blog. There will be blogs in every language, and we could do a
basic speed test and also show how easy it is to code? NB - AFAIK there is
no mention of python on On-Rev - but I've not tested to see if it is
installed - can;t imagine it won't be.
