    The problem is that the element referenced by the Use element may
be referenced multiple times (you could have 10 use elements
referencing it).  So, the simple getGraphicsNode(element) call can't
work.  Unfortunately I think you are in for a lot of work to get this
information but it's there somewhere :).  I could suggest places that
you might start 'hacking code' but I don't think this is really
supported by Batik right now (we don't support modifications to
content referenced by a 'use').
