Sandy in UK: Flexible computer programming

By changing from Bitmaps to SVG, it will be no problem at all to have  
varying sizes of circles. But using bitmap graphics is what can  
restrict us to specific sizes. An issue we might have to discuss is  
whether we would need to sort differently based on sizing, but my  
instinct is that it shouldn't make any difference. I would consider  
it a matter of style or tone rather than a true difference that would  
need to be sorted differently.

What do you all think?
