=head1 NAME - given two identically sized images create an image twice the height with interleaved rows from the source images.
perl even_input odd_input output
This sample produces an output image with interleaved rows from the
two input images.
Multiple implementations are included, including two that revealed
bugs or limitations in Imager, to demonstrate some different
See for an example where this
might be useful.
