I should add this... I think that looking at SVG for anything other
than exqamples is not useful for cairo; cairo is not trying to be the
end-all be-all SVG renderer, but instead to be a useful 2D rendering
API/library.  We can get ideas about what the possibilities are from
SVG, but "implementing SVG filters" is not useful as the only (and
main) goal.
