Hi, Johannes-

If I understand you correctly, you want to have hit testing on pointer 
events for the stroke, but not for the fill.  If that's right, you can 
do this using the 'pointer-events' attribute or property.

Here's an example:

<svg version='1.1' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' 
xmlns:xlink='http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink' width='100%' height='100%' 
viewBox='55 95 65 65'>

    <polyline points='72.75,100 100.25,100 112.75,122.75 100.25,145.5 
72.75,145.5 60.25,122.75' fill='lime' stroke='orange' stroke-width='5' 
stroke-linecap='round' stroke-linejoin='round' pointer-events='stroke' 
onclick='alert("hit stroke")'/>


By the way, this list, www-svg, is an W3C forum to discuss issues with the
SVG Spec. For questions about development details and such, you should post
to the very active,  friendly, and helpful list called SVG-Developers:

Hope that helps-
