if the icon is a scalable format e_icon asks for the loader to pre-render it at
64x64. this hasn't changed since svg support popped in. so the icons u see on
screen will be rendered up or down from 64x64 pixels. it can be made bigger but
then u pay a cost in extra ram usage. (64x64 will use up 16kb. 128x128 will use
64kb - PER ICON). no there isn't a config setting for this (currently). note
that svg images are simply rendered to a bitmap on load - so after that they
are like any other bitmap image file.

so basically - no - they were not rendered at a higher res (after i added evas
load options which was now a month ago or so). unless u have screenshots to
demonstrate something.... :)
