Have you already experimented with that idea? Maybe it's an idea to profile 
the histogram plugin, then.

It's that I really don't want to make the tiles interface public, otherwise 
this would be a job for a tile annotation class -- there are other places 
where caching information per tile might speed up calculations a lot. 
Photoshop, for instance, caches several views per tile, down to a one-pixel 
color-corrected rgb represention of a tile, to speed up redisplay.
