Use the postscript "arct" command. Drawing a filled polygon becomes
x0 x1 add 2 div y0 y1 add 2 div moveto
x1 y1 x2 y2 r arct
x2 y2 x3 y3 r arct
x3 y3 x4 y4 r arct
...
x(n-1) y(n-1) x0 y0 r arct
x0 y0 x1 y1 r arct
closepath
fill
where n is the number of points and r is the radius of the arc.
arct is a language level 2 feature, but it shouldn't be too hard to
emulate it in level 1 if need be (using arc).
I don't know SVG, but it should be possible to use the same technique there.
