the foreground graphics get vectorized and included as an .svg in the romsets

the background graphics get scanned and made available for download on various resource sites such as http://tsk-tsk.net/net/extart/

I imagine if the SVG support ends up allowing bitmaps they'll be integrated into them.

This might seem a bit unusual as they're not ROMs as such, and could be considered 'analog' data, but exceptions are sometimes made, they're essential to the things functioning as as much a part of the machine as the actual roms.
