| How much communication have you attempted with XFree86 via the

A lot! :-)
You may want to check <devel at xfree86.org>, I am subscribed to that list with
<plessky at cnt.ru> e-mail. I canceled subscription to <xfree86 at xfree86.org> due
to many off-topic mails.
Besides, I am on XSVG mailing list, Carl Worth and Keith Packard are
subscribed to it. (Carl is key developer behind Xr/Xc/XSVG)
I also have some off-list communication with several XFree86 (ex-)developers.
SVG Icons * BlueSphere Icons 0.3.0 released
