An alternative that would not degrade startup performance is to ship one res
bmp along with vector files. When an image is referenced initially, use the
shipped bmp and start a background render job from the vector file. Once render
completes, cache the result to disk and swap in the correct res image into the
running instance. This would make Eclipse behave analogous to progressive
resolution image loading.
Just a thought and I am certainly not in a position to volunteer to implement
something like this. :)
