Description Renata Hodovan 2011-07-27 00:13:49 PDT
SVG shapes such as <rect>, <circle>, <ellipse>, <line> etc are currently all rendered by RenderSVGPath, which means that they are synthesized into WebCore::Path objects and drawn via GraphicsContext's fillPath/strokePath methods.

The purpose is to take advantages of the underlaying platform's specific drawing methods, which are already accessible via GraphicsContext (drawRect, drawEllipse, and so on) 

This is the master bug of all new renderers.

At this point I don't think we want to add more diversity. You can convince me of course.
