Dunno, I thought it had grown into some kind of general argument about 
life, the universe and everything.

If you say that, it means that you understand my point.

But that's an extreme example : generally, any use of raster images within 
a patch makes svg partly inefficient, partly besides the point. Also, 
people like screenshots so that they can show things exactly like they are 
used in practice... on a raster monitor. That's partially because vector 
monitors haven't been sold since 1980 or so !

Voilà, c'est tout.
