A couple of things I could use feedback about:

- WDYT of my suggestion to use `draw()` as the function keyword? It corresponds with SVG's `d` and is more specific than `shape()` and differentiates from `path()`.
- Not sure about including an `arc` syntax at all. It's been a long outstanding issue in SVG to try to find a better syntax for it, I feel that maybe we're making that clunky syntax last longer than it should. Perhaps bezier curves are sufficient for the first version (bezier curves and arcs are interchangeable);
- Thinking that we can do a better job with animations than how `path()` is animated: enable animating between lines/curves/arcs by converting all of them to bezier curves.
