We definately need to store the latest state of of the object as a
picture. I think it should be a vectore graphics format. The obvious best
candidate is SVG. Storing as a vector graphics format gives a lossless
format so we can zoom without loss of defination. It prints without loss
of definition too. In principle it is smaller than a raster image too.
However we need a library capable of translating a SVG data stream to an
image of arbitary resolution (like a 2000 dpi printer..)
