While I found this years ago, there is no progress in the current trunk (I
am not complaining). Are there any plans to improve this in foreseeable

Actually I am looking for ANY tool for RELIABLE SVG to vector PDF conversion
and so far only Batik can process some advanced SVG features I rely on. But
when my object are below the mask, they are rasterized, which is currently a
blocker for me.

Couldn't be this somehow enhanced with the help of firefox/chrome source
code? Their current SVG support is amazing, but AFAIK the canvas can't be
exported as vector PDF :-(
