LOL, I already doing a programming project for school... but I guess
all open source developers are like this???
But I guess the real problems with these things like SVG is that you
need to write code, even if you just want to draw a single line;
whereas in Flash you just point your mouse and draw it... I think
these formats needs to have a GIMP-like editor that supports Frames
and animation if they were to replace Flash. GIMP already supports SVG
so one could probably just fork it and create SVG animation program or
