Ah - no, it won't play scripts in the SVG.  That is correct.

Hi, Leonard-

Yes, I was aware that you could script Illustrator (and so on) itself, but as far as I know, you can't execute scripted content in the authoring environment, right?

For example, this file doesn't execute mouseover or click events.

In any event, this is still a constraint of Inkscape and other SVG viewers and authoring tools, so we still need tests that work for static SVG UAs.
