OK, so maybe this is more main-stream than I thought.  And, as Sebastian
just reminded us, we do have switch processing in examples already
in place.

So I will put it in, just using a "-t" option at the example (or src)
block, and -h and -w options for width and height (cannot use -r for  
because -r is already taken.....)

Eric, no action for org-blocks necessary.
