[Lazarus] HiRes for IDC icons

Hello Vojtěch,
patch doesn't alter icon visualization, just increase (and make usable
and even touchable!) all the Componet Palette buttons, even on HighDPI

SVG icons distribution is another matter: I believe that the Lazarus
project should use *only* the SVG file format to store icons (and
other images in general) within the svn trunk repository.

Furthermore, to avoid lossless of quality during conversion a
different set of SVG files should be created: icon1_24x24.svg,
icon1_48x48.svg, icon1_96x96.svg, and so on for all the images/icons
used... If you are thinking that this is too much work to manage then
think to the benefits.

"rsvg-convert" tool is a good solution to convert from SVG to PNG,
since fpvectorial is still immature for such purpose.

Best regards,
Sandro Cumerlato
