Sweet :-). But the point was, I was suggesting getting the basics (where 
the ink is applied, bleeding - I guess maybe that relates to absorbency, 
so...) correct before worrying about how the pigment-height-on-canvas 
changes things. I don't see a problem adding that after the other stuff 
works, so I was trying to encourage Fela not to be freaked out by 
everything we would like it to do eventually :-).

That said, if this is coming out of your posterior then you should 
consider your diet. -- Richard Moore, in response to Aaron Seigo's 
stated source of suggested enum values.
