This is an interesting question.  I think it is possible, but I am not
entirely sure yet how one might do it the simplest.  I know Nathan has
done some extractions at fixed R, but I am not sure offhand the best
way to do it such that you get back an image.  In essence, you'd be
transforming the data such that you'd have a sequence of new, variably
sized cells.

Can you file an issue on our issue tracker, which will help make sure
we come back to this?  I am going to be traveling the next few days
but I think I can work something out.
