Don't know anthing about it really.  Just to note that the one in
System.Drawing is official
spx) and is an interface.  This one is a *class* matching -- but *not*
"implementing" -- that interface...  George Giolfan who worked on
theming support is the only committer in SVN/GIT.  Presumably it's
obsolete -- and maybe was never used in production.  Perhaps it was used
for diagnostics purposes or something.

Jonathan might know know more, or ask George -- though presumably not at
the wonky email address listed in that file.
