Yep. That's not clear yet. I don't need to say that I love 
VectorGraphics, but I'm not sure it can replace BitBlt in all 
circumstances. At least, I think we can make vector icons (originally 
built from SVG files) work _without_ SVG support, just VectorGraphics.

Still, we'd first make them work, so we learn what's best, and only then 
decide how to package them.
