Somebody has finally spent the time needed to:

1)  Eliminate a dependency (good!)

2)  Keep binaries out of the GIT/CVS tree (good!)

3)  (Hopefully) keep Alexandre happy in the process. (good!)

The code is still a bit big, but I'm confident that can be addressed.

If binaries were going into the source tree, then it would have started 
with the icon/bitmap resource.  Anybody remember who spent "tens of 
precious developer hours" to come up with bin2res so we didn't need to 
checkin binaries then?
