By the way: A very straightforward way to achieve that is to simply 
add a Draw file header to the sprite and store it as a Draw file. 
Then, there is no need to change any of the existing rendering or data 
management code. For instance, save as Draw will continue to work, 
etc. For less work and more reliable than introducing switches between 
bitmap and vector mode for rendering, saving, etc.
