That is wonderful.

That is again nice; but looks awkward. Most students first study
C/C++, and then lean Python and PHP; but you are following reverse
order; swimming against currents ;-)

Anyway, it always good to learn good languages.

It seems that you are meant for this project ;-)

Prepare proposal, and submit at:

Could not use it; as I there is no sample file me to upload.

I tried it. SVG file opened in browser (FireFox and Chromium), showing
text along with warning:

"This XML file does not appear to have any style information
associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

However, downloaded opened in Image Viewer of GNOME (eog), but showed
one forth of a circular object, however dxf from zipped file, opened
in LibreCAD fine.
