Hi All,

I am still quite curious whether we really need union, intersect and
include? Shouldn't that be the part the authoring tool does? I mean, such
operations are very costly in time. Or is it just for the ability to for
example dynamically merge pathes together?

About the marker issue -- I think we should seriously consider to allow
veMarker for SVGT 1.2 as well. Just the default behaviour should exclude
veMarker for such languages but if an author really wants to use them then
he should go ahead.. And frankly, markers should be cheaper for rendering
than for example union or intersection of complex pathes.
