probably one hard thing is the 0.39 milestone of Inkscape

IMO, the forum is the last feature we need added, much important is the 
solution to display graphics. how about in the first stage to request 
the submitter the image and *also* the thumbnail?
for autodisplay i think the only solution is to have Inkscape installed 
on server and use it with command line parameters to generate thumbnails 
- other options (ImageMagik?) will not produce god enough conversions
