SVG is quite interesting and useful.  It's also pretty easy to pick up.

Some python and SVG pointers:
- Piddle/sping (http://sourceforge.net/projects/piddle) has an SVG
canvas (self-promotion warning: I wrote this).
- Sketch (http://sketch.sourceforge.net/) handles SVG, but it's unix
- Graphite (http://sourceforge.net/projects/graphite) is a plotting
program which uses Sping as its back-end.  It's definitely beta and
doesn't appear to be active.

On the commercial side: Adobe Illustrator now has native support for SVG
(reading and writing).
