TMerge EOL icons look ugly on W2K

I just updated to TortoiseSVN 1.5 to enjoy some of the cool new
features. I like TortoiseMerge's new ability to display line endings
(that's going to be useful when I go back and forth between developing
on Windows and Linux) - however I'm not quite happy with how they look
here on Windows 2000. See the attached screenshot. The main problem is
that Windows 2000 doesn't support an alpha channel in icons, so they
appear much thicker than they should and in a very dark blue color
instead of the intended pale blue-gray. The nearest-neighbor scaling in
addition makes the shape hardly recognizable.

Even if they would be drawn properly, there is still the problem that
the line ending glyphs don't follow the whitespace color setting, as the
ones for tabs and spaces do.

I noticed that there's commented out code in BaseView.cpp
(CBaseView::DrawLineEnding()) to programmatically draw the line endings,
which would help with both of these issues. I'm not set up to compile
things myself and try it out, but would it be possible to make the
choice between icons and programmatic drawing either configurable, or
use programmatic drawing by default on Windows 2000?
