    This might not be soo bad.  There will be a bit more overhead,
especially if you do all the grid lines.  Some system where you
manage the grid lines that are part of the document would help keep
the overhead down.  The real problem with not doing it this
way is that you will have to take care to match the rendering as the
user zooms and pans (and perhaps rotates) the view.

    We implement our drawing in 'paintComponent' in the
batik.swing.gvt.JGVTComponent.  In particular we fill our visable
region with the background color which is usually opaque white - hence
your grid doesn't show.  You have sort of two options.

    1) override paintComponent yourself and do all the stuff the
baseclass does but insert drawing your grid before the SVG content.

    2) set the background color to fully transparent (opacity=0) and
then you can draw the 'real' background and your grid and just call

    Good luck!
