We support using background:-moz-element() to reference an SVG pattern. See
http://hacks.mozilla.org/2010/08/mozelement/. It's pretty easy to define;
the object that you're filling with the pattern is just a rectangle the size
of the background image as determined by background-size etc --- the same as
it would be for an SVG image without intrinsic dimensions.
