I would hope that, even if many veg*ns wouldn't want to eat vat-grown meat themselves (out of respect for the whatever animals might have to suffer to produce it), that they'd at least support the idea. I know some veg*ns dream of a future paradise in which nobody will eat meat, but quite frankly that's not going to happen - too many people like the taste of meat too much to give it up (like me ;p) so it would be far more preferable to subject some animals to suffering now in order to prevent future suffering and environmental degradation.
Also, I'm not sure that vat-grown meat will necessarily lead to any animal suffering at all; judging from the article, all you need are stem cells, and those can already be extracted from humans via perfectly legal (and hence cruelty-free) means.
