Dear Seasiders,

with only a handful of methods it was possible to create a prototype  
Seaside2 application[1] which serves SVG clients[2]. Many thanks to all  
the Seaside developers which have put in such a lot of effort to make it  
so easy for new applications and developers :)

The next logical step is to make a canvas for SVG, like the one which  
exists for HTML. So may I ask,

o are there any do's and dont's for a Seaside renderer/canvas

o is there anything you would have done completely different,
  if you could start all over again (without any backward compatibility)

o if at some point in time #callback: would be added,
  are there any drawbacks, things to be aware of ahead of time

o any other comment or suggestion, all appreciated

Does some effects on the builtin Seaside top.jpg image.

[2] Firefox and Opera support SVG, Firefox only to "some" extent.
Opera even supports the Ajax script.
