Right, that's my understading of supersampling.

GIL's subsample_view skips pixels (takes less sampling points) and I was
thinking in doing sort of the opposite: take 2 or more pixels from the
source image as if they were multiple samples from the same "point", that
is, mapped into just one pixel in the target.
That's why I referred to it as supersampling.
