Plato's Cave

One can easily imagine moving around in a cave,
Howto cut a hole of fixed shape in an elastic sheet, seems a simple  
enough request to state.

Jeff found a great way to represent this using hand code, but
the GUI for an Authoring Tool just doesn't seem to exist

but trying to file a suitable bug at Inkscape brought home how truly  
difficult the current SVG1.1 spec is to interpret for an authoring tool.

kind regards

A cave derived from my attempts to represent moving around in a  
personalised space, that barely interacts with a reflection or shadow  
of an external reality.
