This simple technique brings many advantages:

. Less weight: an image may be displayed as many times as you wish by  
reference to the source that stays unique (icons in a list field for  
instance).
. An image can be changed in all places it appears easily (or  
modified by manipulating its imagedata).
. If you use another stack to store images (not a substack), you are  
on the right way to create multiple-skins applications :-)
