Did you see my link, where I was trying to illustrate a similar point?


http://www.bradclicks.com/cssplay/border-image/round-test1.html

I was trying to show how much something could be distorted if it was  
just a little bigger than 2 tiles, so that 3 would get squished in.  
Then, for balance, I did the opposite and showed how 2 tile could be  
stretched to nearly the size of 3 tiles. They were distorted either  
way, and the stretched ones were not noticeably worse looking than the  
squished ones. With a straight-up rounding, the distortion wouldn't be  
more than about half the extremes of what I show here.
