I've been using cairo+libsvg-cairo+SDL to do embedded SVG for a while 
now, even though libsvg-cairo is deprecated, for the reason that 
libsvg-cairo makes it very simple to implement such a scheme (display 
list cache)..

Basically, my GUI system has an SVG description, with nodes defined 
for specific aspects of the GUI, and I render those nodes according 
to event->input, caching those nodes that don't change and only 
updating those that do change .. works quite well, actually ..
