Hi Dirk et al,

Don't you get different results depending on whether clamping happens at each stage or only at the end?  It seems like this isn't just a performance question, it's a behavioral question.

PS. I've been lurking on this list for a while now, but this is my first post. Hopefully I'm not overstepping etiquette by jumping in.

Again, we are about a complexity from linear to a constant in many cases. I think that this fact is worth it to questioning the "always-clamp". Even with better hardware and GPU acceleration in the future, this would still be a win.

To your previous argument about the cache: Quite often the images are big enough to cause cache misses. And even if not, the speedup of one run in comparison to n runs over each pixel is huge.
