Cool. _extremely_ cool, in fact. Wow. Any chance we'll be able to put
that up on the website or include it in the samples later?

That's not currently supported, but I'd like get it working at some
point. It's going to be somewhat tricky, because SVG import is a plugin
that's loaded dynamically at runtime, so one can't rely on some (eg)
'svgLoadImage' function to be present.

It doesn't work through loadImage() because the vector import plugins do
their own thing independent of raster image frames and the image format

Petr got EPS export working from scripter in 1.3, which I think is very
cool, so it can evidently be done. I'm going to try to find a way to
provide a generic import interface for the scripter, though, so there's
no need to hand code functions for each importer.
