John works for me
There is an SVG backend already in matplotlib. It hasn't been
announced because it is in development by Jared Wahlstrand. Perhaps
Jared can give a status report on what needs to be done, and you might
want to help out. He might have a more recent copy in his development
tree than I do.
Here are the issues as I understand them:
* image support
* font support (freetype vs afm), use of font families /
* some oddness when the user calls savefig with a high dpi?
Shouldn't SVG ignore the dpi setting? That's what I did in
* There also appears to be some problem in centering the figure?
I've only been testing this a bit - my SVG viewer doesn't seem to work
