No, who is he?

The above paragraph is just my personal observation, maybe tinted/tainted
slightly by little crumbs of Critical Theory.

It doesn't matter how much complexity you introduce as long as it solves a
problem for which there is no better solution.

How do _you_ solve the problem of parametrizing object classes using
objects instead of atoms? AFAIK, you don't.

Here are a few examples of usage of #remap_image.

moving ( 40px up, 30 px left ):

 |           /\ /\
[#remap_image] X [# - ( 40 30 )]
 |           \/ \/

rotating (60 degrees):

 |           /\ /\
[#remap_image] X [#rotate 6000]
 |           \/ \/

zooming (by 280/256):

 |           /\ /\
[#remap_image] X [# *>>8 280]
 |           \/ \/
