Hi Fabien, good conversations! Been a while I was thinking about gil so much.

Interesting! I would be interested in those implementation for the
toolbox extension. Let me know if you're interested submitting. I can
help out when needed.

I'm not sure I follow here. Small code sample possible?

Right now color_convert doesn't supply passing the rgb_to_luminance
algorithm. But I 'm not sure if that's needed for your case. When you
use the algorithm copy_and_convert_pixels algorithm you pass as the
third parameter the color converter. In your case just define your own
