* The bad news is that there are some parts of the system that are not well described by the paper that will make it very difficult to implement. These parts include how each wavelet decomposition gives four results rather than one and how the clustering algorithm uses the feedback that it gets from the "Cluster Dispensation Value" algorithm that is supposed to keep the number of regions found in an image reasonable.

* The good news is that in my careful reading, I found that the signatures that are produced by this system seem to lend themselves to some interesting manipulations such as taking the high-frequency (detail) portions of one signature and putting it together with the low-frequency (general shapes) portions of another signature to make a signature of a composite object. This separation of the frequency levels would also allow different kinds of combinations of signature of similar objects, favoring either detail or overall shapes.

I have been considering two possible image handling frameworks for the software portion of my project: ImageMagick and ImageJ. Both seem to have very well documented APIs and modular structures. I have installed ImageMagick from source in my home directory on quark, and I have ImageJ on my own machine. (My machine has an old version of ImageMagick on it as it turns out.) I will be trying-out these two frameworks to see which one best fits my project.
