The size of the images is randomized but "big" (in the 1024x768 
ballpark). There is no raster reprojection.
We won't change the tests definitions at this point, our current
problem is to reduce the amount of results we'll present (we have
too many already), but we hope to turn this exercise into a "classic"
that might be run even other times during the year (this one is
just a personal idea) so

We want to keep a low profile and not divulge results up until the
presentation, so no, no links :-)
