Oh, indeed! Sorry. I should pay more attention to actually reading the
documentation I quote here. D'uh.


P.S.: I must try that filter again. Actually, looking at it more
      precisely, I probably tried to use the decimate filter for
      whatever I tried to achieve. Grrr. But its intent isn't totally
      clear (to me) from the docs.
