Good point. As long as it's vector-based it can be converted to SVG, so
I don't think it will be a problem. This project will turn a lot of
people on to the format.

Yes, and speaking of which: I just updated the MetadataDiscussion Wiki
page listed below to include information on reading/writing RDF Metadata

autogenerating bitmap files from SVGs. We don't want to lose metadata.
