- Why render svg files in bitmap?
- Why not use svg icons in platform? This way the icons are always beautiful, no matter the resolution of the screen
it would mean that the IDE would have to "render" SVG to bitmaps at runtime (whereas we currently do it at dev-time). Given the number of icons in Eclipse IDE, there are risks that this consume a lot of CPU (in the UI Thread moreover...) and creates lags. But it's just a guess, I'm not aware of any actual experiment of theorical metrics about the impact of displaying SVGs in Eclipse.
