I should love to see that as well.

2.  Could someone comment on the differences in svg files used by

a set of custom shapes but would like to build/validate them against a
or schema in XML-spy to make sure they are kosher.  Articles elsewhere

subset?  (Again, I apologize if this has been answered.  Perhaps it 
is a candidate for the FAQ or the documentation.)

It's not formally defined, but it's described in the doc subdirectory of
the sources.

3.  In my trip through the list archive, I noticed several queries about 
Visio interchangeability.  This posting might be interesting to some:
