[cairo] editing a loaded SVG file

Sorry, a web application is not an option (it was considered a while ago). We need windows infrastructure like menus and multi-doc models etc with network support. Is there really no *easy* way to access the vertices's of an SVG using cario? I did think of loading our SVG twice; Once for rendering via RSVG into cario and a second time loaded with xmllib2 to get access to all the nodes etc...
But I am looking for the simplest option.

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?

You could write it as an SVG-based Web application and run it in Firefox.

"Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?" Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said. [Luke 7:41-43]
