   You can register a event listener on the root SVG element using
DOM Events (addEventListener).  Note that a listener on the root of
the SVG tree receives _all_ events of the kind your request so you 
may need to filter to just your elements.

   You can also register listeners on just about any single element
but it sounds like registering one listener on the root element is
what you want.

   All our DOM events are dispatched in our UpdateManager's thread
so you need to make sure to call over to the swing thread to run 
your swing update code.
