What software can create a paint-by-number?


Question

Is there any software which can convert a photograph to a black-and-white outline containing tiny numbers stating which color to give each area?

If you have a scripting buddy, you could use Illustrator's live trace to break the image down into color regions, then have the script run through and assign a number to each swatch. It would actually be an interesting javascript challenge if I had the time to experiment. Unfortunately, I don't.
