[GRASS-user] How to merge rasters using feathering/blending ?

I wrote a script to do something like this at one point, though I can't find
it now.  It was intended for terrain, but could be used per band on imagery.
 It used r.buffer to create a distance gradient and then r.recode to convert
this gradient to a percentage.  I then used r.mapcalc to merge the 2 rasters
based on the percentage.

The script automated the buffer distances and the creation of the recode.txt
file, but went something like this:

## make a null raster
r.mapcalc "temp_null = if(isnull(source),1,null)"

## create a distance gradient from the null raster.  The output will have
int values 1-7 where 1 equals the input null raster
r.buffer in=temp_null out=temp_buf distances=10,20,30,40,50,60 units=meters

## fill nulls in the distance gradient with 0 for recoding
r.mapcalc "temp_buf_fill=if(isnull(temp_buf),0,temp_buf)"

## recode to a percentage
r.recode in=temp_buf_fill out=temp_recode rules=recode.txt

where recode.txt would have the range from temp_buf_fill expressed as

## merge the output

Sorry if that doesn't work, but hopefully you get the idea.
