So maybe softsprites is just the wrong term? Loading bitmaps from disk
and put them on the graphics screen seems a very common thing. It
would nice to allow that one or the other way.

However as I'm learning more and more the graphics screen
representation is so different that the idea of device independent
bitmaps surely creates way to much overhead for the loader. Therefore
some converter (or resource compiler) running on the cc65 host
platform seems in fact reasonable. Input would be some bmp/png/... and
output some device dependent bitmap.

Best, Oliver
