Why would you want to do that ?

Just a possibility if lasem went unmaintained, which might happen as it
is a one man project.

Sure it can happen. But by moving the mathml code in goffice, you will
take over the maintainership. Why no keep it in a standalone source
package ?

I think you highly underestimate  the difficulty of SVG rendering, shown
by the fact that all the modern web browsers fail to have a decent
coverage of the SVG 1.1 specification.

I don't underestimate anything. I know it would be a long term issue.

What I don't get is you have two existing projects, one of them having a
pretty good coverage of the SVG specification (librsvg) and a large user
base, and you would start a new project from scratch. What for ?

EMF support is the priority since it seems that we have no usable
alternative. Other format might follow later or not.
