Yes, Clay and I discussed this a little a while back in the context of 
embedded images. We decided that it would be best to have 
a Cocoon generator that could scale the images. Problem is, neither of 
us has built a generator before, nor have we checked to see if one 
exists yet.

I really don't want to have to go managing multiple image resources when 
I don't need to.

Clay did make a suggestion that seemed to work when we were discussing 
the above, but I can't find it in the archives right now - Clay can you 
find it/remember it?
