I just read http://schepers.cc/?p=243 and I'd like to say that I think
this is a great idea for general purpose drawing, especially if the
"tension" was an attribute of such paths (rather than being hard coded
as in Scheper's library.)

I'd support the notion of adding that in SVG 2.

I also have a better idea along the same line: Spiro splines.
http://www.levien.com/spiro/  and HTML Canvas demo at
http://fontly.com/sandbox/spiro.html If the patent on Spiro could be
put through the W3C policy grinder, wouldn't that be great - Inkscape
already supports it as a Live Path Effect.
