This discussion is in the context of the SVG <path> API, which is an
attribute microsyntax.  So, that's not possible for this.  ^_^

However, we discussed several ways to make path editting friendlier,
one of which was to expose a JSON representation both for getting and
setting paths or path segments.  So that's basically the same as just
adding a single options object.
