`Display programming'?

Now we know why the venerable Richard Stallman's name was not listed as a 
co-author of Turtle Geometry.


I see no movement of either Scratch or Snap! to promote either the translation 
or re-presentaion of their pixel-based `display' 
 -- as in `display programming' --
 into `cell based' -- EG `text' -- `display programming'.

Yet emacs does support SVG, which, like logo, is a Vector-based form of 
`display' which most of us would call `graphics';
so it would seem that SVG *might* be used to represent the line segments 
produced by turtle graphics via Logo, Scratch, and Snap!.


Through this search I just discovered the possibility of SVG graphics being 
inlined in org-mode files is some cases, depending on the OS emacs is running 

`Display Programming' ... humpf!
