If it is only the latter, then maybe a good future enhancement would be the ability to import eps vector objects. That way you could make what you wanted in something like Illustrator and then import it.
Cracked open Metacard 4.0 (as one does) as I seemed to remember 
something about EPS files:
exported an EPS file from Xara Xtreme:

Tried to import the EPS file into a stack (no joy with MC 4.0 and the XX 
EPS on either
Mac or Linux). I wonder why there is an EPS import tab there?

Tried to import a generic EPS file (downloaded from the internet) on 
Mac, and crashed MC.

Tried MC 2.5; crashed the thing.

Now I seem to remember that "Once upon a time" RunRev (an IDE that some 
Livecode people
may vaguely remember) imported EPS images; funny how that capability 
just vanished off
the map without a backwadr glance . . .
