While I was testing and optimising the code I originally sent on 
2011-03-13 I went through a number of different equations but failed to 
find ((x+128)*257)>>16. The equation I sent was wrong by 1/255th in some 
places, but was a large enough speed-up over (x+127)/255 that in my 
opinion was perceptually close enough.

I am very grateful to you Michael for pointing out ((x+128)*257)>>16.
