No, I don't. But I feel there *should* be a way to do it using imagedata 
and one of the transfer modes of the ink property.

Unfortunately, I've never used these within Rev (or indeed, anywhere for 
over 25 years) - but back in the dim, distant past I remember using the 
graphics accelerator chips to perform something like this very quickly.
