By the way... did you all know that gallery2 http://gallery.menalto.com/ supports SVG? Not as SVG thumbnails (yet), but it renders PNG thumbs from the SVG, and when you "download photo in original format", then you get the SVG file rendered.

I have an example here: http://vertex.corpsmoderne.net/

Maybe we could be inspired by that, I don't know about the "current plan" because I'm not really a technical person :-)
