I was profiling the performance of the changes that happened in r9112, and
it turned out to be very significant to pass and evaluate integers in the
prepared expression. Sticking with float8 values for the x and y positions
of the pixel contain significant performance benefits (although

I've changed the x and y positions in 1 raster map algebra back to float
values for performance reasons.

These are my metrics for running 5 sets of 10 rasters, each 500x500 pixels,
from one of the SRTM tiles linked to by the WKTRaster tutorial page. Times
are in milliseconds. The first column is revision 9112 (removal of strstr
in the pixel loop, using integer as x and y pixel values), the second
column is that same revision (with a modification to use float8 instead of
int32 for x and y pixel coordinates), the third column is revision 9111
(using strstr in the pixel loop), the fourth column is the incorporation of
this change into the HEAD revision as of this morning (more memory
allocations have been moved out of the pixel loop).
