Err, I'm confused; not that this is such an unusual occurence you
understand :-)
One way to  read your sentence above is that you think the SystemTracer is
an external program - but I'm convinced you don't actually mean that since
you have demonstrated on plenty of occasions that you know what you're
talking about. So I'm puzzled as to what you see an ImageCreator doing that
the cloner doesn't already do? I've used it on many occasions to create new
images with different content, format, layout, and whatever else I have had
to alter. What is missing? Is it just too-early mental binding of
SystemTracer to some idea of 'merely' recreating the extant image? Or am I
so tired tonight that my random sigline applies to me :-)
