   > What's NATURALSIZEFLAG supposed to _do_, anyway?

   I'm not positive, but I think it is a marker for the editor to
   indicate whether the WIDTH and HEIGHT attributes are the "NATURALSIZE"
   of the image or whether the author is using them to scale the image.

Interesting idea. But if the natural size is required, why bother to
give the dimensions at all? 

And what if I want the image distorted by making it wider than natural
but keeping the same height?

Sometimes I think these so-called "editors" are written by people who
have heard an editor described, but who have never actually seen one.
