to proceed by turning my source JPGs into tiffs,
and then removing (making transparent) the unwanted
areas (normally duplicate people) in Gimp
via an Alpha channel (set in the Layer dialog).
I also need to resequence some of the images in
the pano to get my preferred shots to be
dominant (i.e. go on top).
I iterated a few times via the panorama
preview to work out what edits to make.
I did it this way (rather than editing the
mapped tiffs) for two reasons
1) I can now re-map-and-blend at different sizes
2) Gimp doesn't handle cropped tiffs.
Feature request for Hugin; could there be
a reload(refresh?) changed source image.
It was irksome to have to quit and restart
hugin to see the result of a source edit.

add it to the hugin tracker:
