Yes, as what Pranam suggested and I agreed to as well,
a single channel does sound reasonable to start with and focus on.

Certainly, for single channel images, such flexibility is feasible and

Yes, as image and operation complexity increases, we may need to narrow
histogram container choices.

I did not suggest anything other than what has been proposed:
- generic 1D, 2D, 3D histogram functions
- 1D, 2D cumulative histogram function
In fact, I assumed we may only be able to provide calculations of
2-3 D histograms during this project, nothing else.
