well actually I don't think it's strictly required that our images be
obtained from things with pixels or even bits. I'm sure PIL can read
those xpm files (which are basically text descriptions) and I suppose at
some future time we ought to be able to read vector descriptions of
various kinds. It would be really neat to get SVG images in via the same
kind of simple interface.
