Could we use SVG for rendering? Is there some way to 'talk' to the 
library and have it spit back bitmaps, etc, for us?

The GNOME stuff is pretty cross platform. I've seen it on Windows, Mac, 
and Unix, and it tends to be very pure and C-Centric w/o lots of 
platform specific stuff.

Just as Opengl is used for 3D in squeak, could Svg be used for 2D?
