Perfect. Works exactly like I had hoped, 640x480 bytes--nothing more. 
Thanks. I had noticed it, but didn't get the connection. Then I wandered 
around nearby in the PIL description, and noticed something about decoding 
and write. Unknown territory to me. However, if I had followed up there was 
a connection between tostring and "raw" decoding.
