Hi Andrew,

ok, some code pointers - look into vcl/source/app/brand.cxx,
Application::LoadBrandBitmap() on how to get to the brand dir - note
those $BRAND_BASE_DIR/program...  macros.

For actual reading, you'd probably want to use osl::File (in
osl/file.hxx), see e.g.
xmlhelp/source/cxxhelp/provider/inputstream.cxx for how to operate
it (open, read, getSize, close etc).

Create a local vector<sal_uInt8> of the appropriate size to read the
svg into then.
