It's not easy for several reasons. From a technical point of view their
System.Drawing is far behind ours and the way that they also implemented
it is quite different to our one. 

I do not think that there is a problem is they take our effort and try
to re-use it, if they respect our licensing terms. They are already
doing that for other namespaces.

I think that the best answer if give a try to both and get your own

I strongly believe that for beginning of the next year we will have a
grade of completeness that will allow to run most of basic / medium size
applications that use SWF.
