[cairo] editing a loaded SVG file

But once the SVG is loaded, do we have access to the DOM? Or the node and vertices themselfs? Or just the RSVG handle? Don't get me wrong, the RSVG handle is great, it both quick and easy to use at the high level. But I think I need low level vertices access.

And ideas?

We don't want to support the full range of SVG just the ability to add polylines and points (for way points etc...) and have the ability to move them around the place.

In that case, you'll have to write all the non-rendering parts yourself, really.
