Hi,

if you are running Linux - you may want to try Sodipodi
http://sodipodi.sourceforge.net
or Kontour
http://www.koffice.org
(both are available for FREE)

If you don't have Linux yet - you can try
either Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW 10 (but this will cost you money).
Adobe Illustrator supports export for SVG, and CorelDRAW 10 can both import 
and export SVG drawings. 

re: "how matured is this format?"
It's in the beginning of its life, it's not matured at all.
So far only Adobe produced SVG Plugin. Mozilla has separate version with 
built-in SVG support, but it's not included in default version/distribution. 
Sound like an excellent opportunity for software developers :-)
