Actually I almost deleted #centroid.pd to rename [#centroid2] to 
[#centroid], because #centroid2 is several times faster. You should use 
[#centroid2] whenever possible. If you want to add the same feature to 
[#centroid2] it's only two more lines of code but it's C++.

It could return more if I am using voxels instead of pixels. For example, 
a voxel image would be shaped like (layers,rows,columns,channels), which 
is one more dimension than a pixel image. This is also equivalent to 
putting a whole movie in a grid: (frames,rows,columns,channels).
