Call to plugin authors: svgs in JOSM

there were constantly made improvements in the last years for better 
hidpi support in JOSM. Since the newest JOSM tested version 17013 all 
internal icons are in svg (except Potlatch2 mappaint style icons).
However most plugins still use png icons.
This is a call to all plugin authors to follow and to transform all 
icons of your JOSM plugins to svg (or reuse core icons if suitable are 
available). You don't want your pixelated icons stand out between the 
sharp core icons ;)
I recommend to clean your svgs with svgcleaner to keep the plugin jar 
file size small.
