The code that is used by Swfdec - that is all the operators that are
part of Flash - works fine. What is missing, and I guess that's the
reason for why it's not merged, is someone to check that the operators
that are only part of SVG work fine. These are COLOR_DODGE,
COLOR_BURN, SOFT_LIGHT and EXCLUSION. I just copied them from
Emmanuel's work as they were.

Another thing I wasn't sure about is if the 2 Flash-specific operators
(SUBTRACT and INVERT) can be implemented using the SVG operators, but
I couldn't come up with a way to do it. That would certainly ease up
implementation of operators for some backends, in particular the SVG
