Thank you for your suggestions.

So far, I really like the idea of using inkscape, but because I need
internal data structure (I guess), the extension would have to be
written in C/C++. So no easier to use scripting languages :/

cairo-trace seems easier to use. Has the shared library proxying been
tested on Windows?
