Should we move the bitmaps from app/bitmap into data/bitmaps and maybe rename "stipple" to "stipple2" ?

I would change the application rather than the data/bitmaps module.
The application is self-contained and no module depends on it.
The risk of upsetting something is much smaller.

Renaming the Stipple file would cause existing X resource file to be
modified, however.

        *bitmap.stipple:			Stipple
