[Mono-devel-list] SVG, Glade xml vs Avalon

Something you might find interesting is that Avalon is effectively an 
xml namespace specifically for  drawing vector graphics - sounds a alot 
like svg to me.

There are also some interesting parallels with the xml gtk glade stuff 
and avalon. Maybe Microsoft are stealing some thing we already have, 
but haven't quite realized it yet and are being sneaky and putting all 
the bits together behind our backs.

cario is/will be able to render from SVG, and there nothing stopping 
Miguels team from adding svg capabilities directly into the xml that is 
used in the glade designer - and having it all work dynamically at run 
time rather than pre compiling it.

i.e i know this is wrong but it gives and idea of what i'm taking about 
- imagine an SVG editor and Glade as the same application, but better 
still imagine a form DOM that allows you to manage this at runtime.
