This thread is funny.  Irony of ironies the only reason WebKit can view SVG is 
thanks to the efforts of two *KDE* hackers in the form of KSVG and KSVG2... 
two KDE technologies in every bit the same sense as KHTML.

KDE technology that will be available to all KDE programs as of KDE 4.1 and 
is seen as discouraging other KDE hackers from writing usuing KDE
