Don't get me wrong - I would love LO to be a SVG editor, in the same 
sense that I would love it to be a pixel editor when a pixel graphic is 
selected. Both would require much work to make it happen. In the case of 
the pixel editor the pragmatic answer is to use an external tool, evtl. 
triggered from the office. As long as we do not extensively add work to 
get a good SVG edit roundtrip, the answer for now is the same for SVG.

The idea is good and this should be added to bugzilla as an error. This 
should be possible for SVG and pixel graphics. If this runs well (and 
opens the user's choosen default editor for the wnated purpose) we have 
a good solution.
