Rhino 6 woes: I HATE the picture command ... Please don't phase out background bitmap function

A couple interesting things to note:

  1. If you type BackgroundBitmap in Rhino 6, you’ll get a message saying The BackgroundBitmap command is obsolete and will be phased out in the future. Use the Picture command instead. And then… the BackgroundBitmap command continues to run! It’s not actually gone, it displays a message box that we added months and months ago. Our goal was to see if any of our Beta users noticed or cared. Apparently they didn’t. Now we’re getting the feedback we tried to get in the first place!
  2. If you open a Rhino 5 file with BackgroundBitmap’s in place, they stay there, and you can edit them with BackgroundBitmap.

Here’s what we’re going to do for Rhino 6 SR2:

  1. Add BackgroundBitmap back to the menu
  2. Remove the warning that it will be removed
