Since existing startup time *is* already a user concern, I'm -1000 for 
this,

in your plug-in

What if we bundled SVG files with Eclipse, then on first startup with a 
given resolution we lazily render them to PNGs with the appropriate 
detail. When Eclipse launches, it would use the .PNGs from the cache.

It could take a really long time for the first launch, but subsequent 
restarts should be fairly quick since it would just be loading .PNGs from 
then on.

Other questions:
- 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.
