I actually haven't used since some recent changes were made to it.
Possibly a bug with those changes.  I meant to rewrite the thing from
scratch with handling for translation terms in the TFW, but I got kind
of hung up on that part (the image rectification).  Maybe I should just
attempt a rewrite that doesn't try to do image rectification, if needed,
and just give the user the tie-points needed to run i.rectify.  In some
ways, the TIFF format allows too many different things for it's own

I agree, it's important to get that module working well.
