Thank you so much for those references.  Ever since
the start of this discussion, I have thought of "sprites"
only as some sort of animated cartoon character.  I now
realise they have serious uses as well.  The choice of
name is unfortunate (I am sure I am not the only one
to think of them pejoratively) but I can see now that
the technique is a valuable one, and well worth the
amount of serious discussion that is has been receiving.
