FWIW: I tried PythonMagick for a while, but soon found that large or
complex images caused it to consume excessive memory and sometimes
crash, taking my application with it. I switched to the command line
interface to isolate my application from problems in
Graphics/ImageMagick. Everything ended up much more robust that way,
and the time cost is small--it's on the order of milliseconds.
