Port the "enblend" program to Mac OS X as either a Cocoa or Carbon interface. Enblend is c++ and compiles easily by command line or as an Xcode project however, for some reason, tiff images read by the project misread the tiff tag for image bits per pixel. The project has two main components. One to get enblend to be a Mac friendly applicationn with a simple interface (drag a set of images to the input window with the option of a load command for the user, set the output options, and run). Second, check the enblend code for altivec speed improvements with Apples vImage. Project will be an Xcode project. Enblend and it's sources can be found here: [url removed, login to view]~mihal/enblend/
