how to get svg "native" in Gecko

Just saw an update from - there is now an api for adding
"native" support for various
graphic formats - and SVG would be on the top of my list for us to

Here is a quote:

                              Here's the ImgLib update from Pam Nunn:

                                     You've just designed the best new
image format in the universe, but no one is using it but you?

                                     Add your format to Gecko so that

final gospel. If you
                                     write to this api, be willing to
make some modifications to your component.

If any implementors are interested,

Getting SVG into Gecko seems to me to be a really powerful combination!
