[Clipart] SVG support for getID3

I'm a developer of a 2D graphics program called Inkscape, that produces
files in the 'SVG' format. One of our efforts is the creation of an
online graphics repository called http://www.openclipart.org. For this
project we are experimenting with using ccHost for managing user
uploads. This program uses your getID3 program for gathering info about
the uploaded files.
I would like to add SVG support to getid3 in order for ccHost to be able
to handle the SVG clipart files. SVG is a w3c standard vector graphics
format supported by dozens of open source and proprietary programs, so I
think this would make a solid addition for getid3.
SVG is an XML format. It is also scalable, which means the files do not
have absolute height/width settings, so it's not a perfect analogy to
the png/jpg modules.
I'm pretty familiar with the SVG format; in addition to Inkscape I also
wrote the Perl SVG::Metadata module for extracting/inserting metadata
into SVG files. However, I'm a little bit lost about what I would need
to do to add support for this format to getID3. I was wondering if you
could provide some advice/tips on what would I should do to add this
