gradients does not support spreadMethod

This is easy to see in this test case:

There is no support for this type of thing in CG, so we would have to do our own.  This is an extremely 
uncommon feature, so this is very low priority.
Comment 1 Eric Seidel 2006-01-26 14:56:30 PST
This is a pretty obscure feature.  It would be nice to support this (and we'll likely have to, since the W3C 1.1 test suite covers it), however it's not particularly high priority work.

Looks like:

spreadMethod=pad is supported, but that:

spreadMethod=reflect and

are buggy
Comment 3 Dirk Schulze 2009-06-13 22:05:16 PDT
Only CG doesn't support spreadMethods.
Comment 4 Simon Fraser (smfr) 2010-01-30 21:24:56 PST
I have some WIP code in bug 28152 to synthesize repeating gradients. Reflection would not be hard either.
Comment 5 Matt Bishop 2011-02-11 18:18:39 PST
I don't think I would call it "extremely" uncommon.  Hard to implement perhaps, but a useful part of SVG that has been in the spec since the beginning.

FWIW, Firefox seems to handle it OK.
