I don't mean to be insensitive, but after reading this mailing list for a
few days I've heard an awful lot about SVG files and GRASS modules.  For
what purpose was this project created?  I thought the intention was to make
a library that could natively access DWG files.

It just came to my mind that maybe we're taking the wrong approach building
these samples. My point is: a dwg file created by a converter and from an
SVG file will be limited to the subset of entities and objects supported by
the converter. Besides, an SVG file carries less information than a DWG file
(we'll never get any DIMENSION, MESH or 3DSOLID entities or an OLE2_CONTROL
object from a SVG2DWG converter).

That doesn't mean they're not useful, we can still test most of the common
2D entities and run performance tests.

I've got a couple of R2004 files that I can release to the public domain.
Althoug, they are fairly simple and wouldn't cover all the objects and
entities, not even common ones like dimensions.
