Yes, I expected this. I knew I was pretending too much ;o)

Ok, this would imply writing a function with prototype FilterFunction1D, 
right? And the mask argument should be packed with the data or is there 
a way (which I don't see) to pass arguments to the filter other than the 
input image. Sorry if I'm annoying ;o)

thanks, curzio
