I didn't know that that was your proposal. This thread was just for ero
sized images.
We have interop on exceptions when the image is not in the ready state [1]
so we shouldn't change that (even though I agree there shouldn't have been
an exception in the first place)
For exception-free drawimage calls, people can use the ImageBitmap class.
