... as a specific example, I remember dealing with stacks of images  
taken from an infrared imaging sensor -- perhaps 256 images, each of  
which is, say 512 x 512 pixels. I needed to obtain median pixel values  
from the stack and produce one "median image", as well as perform  
thresholding, masking, perhaps some dilation and erosion. And, also  
get the image 2-D FFT image.

So there we are dealing with an aggregate of 2^26 8-bit pixel values.  
Surely, the majority of time is spent processing pixels, and not  
dispatching over some polymorphic type...
