Same problem with CSIRO; I did do a bout at trying to see if I could get
it stripped down enough to work with Kaffe, but the Java2D support it too
deeply ingrained into not only the viewers, but also the SVG spec itself.
As said, SVG 1.1 should show some hope of having rudimentary support for
this feature, which may become very common requirement in future.

Yes, as I said, I did some work last year to get the Xerces/Xalan packages
to work on both the desktop and custom editions. So unless new regressions
have been introduced since then, all the generally used features should
work. There may be an issue with ARM JIT's const-pool size-limit that
demands re-compiling one class-file, though.
