Sure. I don't claim to invent Sampling theory. I just claim I'm the 
first one to actually implement it for 2d vector graphics. I changed the 
web page to read " But it seems I am the first one to actually implement 
this for 2d vector graphics!" If there is any application that can 
render those examples with quality on par with mine, I'd like to know.

That would mean that no progress is ever possible. I don't agree.
