You may want to have a look here:

http://git.gnome.org/browse/lasem/tree/src/lsmsvgview.c from line 851

and here:

http://git.gnome.org/browse/lasem/tree/src/lsmsvgmarkerelement.c from
line 44

It's the code for the drawing of svg markers along a curve (it comes
from librsvg), with the auto-angle property handling.
