if no anti-aliasing is performed, though. If not, only god knows what
kind of filter has been applied (hardware or software) and the
individual pixel colors would look totally different.

It's also true that we could post-process it, apply some sort of filter
and compare the result of that instead.

Good direction to experiment with, though.
