well, there is librsvg which ties into libart ... my original
intention was to integrate librsvg ... and rewrite rrdgraph to
output svg and then use librsvg for the graphs ... unfortunatley
this seems to be a huge operation .. librsvg needs libxms,
gdk-pixbuffer, libart, libfreetype ... which is a lot
in any event, the libart imaging modle will make it very simple to
move onto svg once this becomes widely used ...
