Hi Jim,

Please look at the updated version:

I've refactored the fix with this concern in mind. Here is what I've done:

- eliminated the new OffscreenHiDPIImage class (as you suggested) and put all of its "scale" logic 
into the OffscreenImage.
- made the scaled OffscreenImage return the physical size (like an ordinary BufferredImage does) by 
default .
- renamed the "set/isHiDPIEnabled" method to "set/isReturnLayoutSize".
- made the setReturnLayoutSize(true) be called internally (where we don't leak the OffscreenImage).

In SG2D, the drawHiDPIImage, for instance, makes a call to op.filter(img, null); where the img is 
expected to return its layout size. That's why I still prefer to use the setReturnLayoutSize 
"switcher", in order not to go deep into the 2D rendering code, casting here and there to 
OffscreenImage and calling getLayoutWidth/Height.

That's a good idea, however we need a 8u working solution as well... As to the naming, I'm ready for 
any suggestions.
