Similar, but more sophisticated. E.g. it has separate view templates that
don't own the data, and provides a number of mathematical functions with

No, can you provide a pointer?

How about RGBA? How would a Fusion version of alpha blending two pixels
look like? The formula is
RGB' = alpha2*RGB2 + (1-alpha2)*alpha1*RGB1
alpha' = alpha2 + (1-alpha2)*alpha1
where pixel 2 is in front of pixel 1. Alternatively, with premultiplied
alpha we have
RGBA' = RGBA2 + (1-alpha2)*RGBA1
When the individual channels are represented by uint8, we must add
functionality to stay in the range 0...255.
