I notice from the FAQ that the free demo version doesn't do planar 
projections.  You can see the effect of the spherical projection when you 
run the demo (which is most impressive) on the supplied images of a 
mountain.  It's not clear how the computations determine what the distance 
to the subject is.  If it thought the schematic parts were small distant 
objects it would probably paste them with unnoticeable distortion.

I am reasonably proficient at manual planar-projection stiching.  Sometime 
soon I plan to post some photos of boards from H8 "#1" which I set on a 
small scanner and stitched by hand.

By the way, Pat, I learned how to stitch images working on LP covers.  :-)
