But that is not a request.

funny, you forgot as well to reply to my question.

No, I am not using SVG on my sites, for the skins I created I used png 

The fresh-site example for forrest use it, I fixed a couple of issues, 
but I am not using that technology somewhere else.

We are comparing two cases SVG and XSP, if you feel that we need to run 
an Ant task then let's do it. But for both technologies as they are 
equivalent cases:

SVG support
batik-1.5b4-fop.jar 2068 Kb
works with static content.
Low usage

XSP support
jdtcore-2.1.0.jar 2408 Kb
works with static content.
Requested by users.

So same reasons you apply for a "get-xsp" ant task I applied for 
"get-svg" ant task.

I am not against SVG, I think that we need it, but all your reasons can 
be applied to SVG, and SVG is distributed by default, so why XSP can not?
