When one has multiple small images that are all the same size, a 
standard trick is to have *one* image (and one file -- a lossless .bmp 
or .png) that is a tiled composite of the images. Read in the image and 
'snip' apart the tiles. I have also seen bitmaps encoded in code as a 
hex string (for use with tk), but I do not know how well that would work 
with wx.
