indeed - unless the svg image literally is not as detailed as the png or
something... but once loaded svg icons go through the identical rendering path
png, edj, tiff, jpeg etc. go through. it's all bitmaps. svg icons are loaded
and rendered at 64x64 on load (thats a hard-coded default right now in e).
