Oh that would cause a lot of trouble. If you want to speed up image 
loading, load all the default icons at once at IDE start. The same as 
TImageList is loading its icons from a LFM form. That's *very* fast.
It would mean creating a single resource stream for all the icons (e.g. 
with a small command line tool) instead of using "lazres laz_images.res 
@laz_images_list.txt". This is definitely the fastest way to load the icons.
With this approach I load country icons of the whole world into my 
application in nearly no time.
