working with images (PIL ?)

I need to write a program to examine images (JPG) and determine how much
area is whitespace. We need to throw a returned image out if too much of it
is whitespace from the dataset we're working with. I've been examining the
Python Image Library and can not determine if it offers the needed
functionality. Does anyone have suggestions of other image libraries I
should be looking at it, or if PIL can do what I need?

If PIL's "histogram" method doesn't give you a clue how you might do
this, hire someone to do it.
