[McIDAS #CEY-749460]: Suggested feature additions for CIRCLE and IMGDISP

Hi Russ,

Yes, and I will be the one that fixes any bugs that may be uncovered.

Right.  I think that the action would be the same for me as it is for
any SSEC programmer:

- bug found our enhancement identified by someone (e.g., MUG)

- I would be contacted to fix the bug or add the enhancement;
  no problem

I guess the thing that got me off a little on this one is that the
MUG was getting inquiries from users of the SSEC distribution of
McIDAS asking if/when support would be added for the new Level III
and TDWR images.  If I didn't do the work (and I am the logical
one to do the work), someone in SSEC would have to be identified
and they would do the work.  The testing required would be the same
in either case.

Or, were you talking about possible changes to IMGDISP?
