[Baypiggies] Java Question (Yes, It's Python related :)

Please don't 'x' me off the list for asking a Java question :)

I am *not* a Java programmer. I am also *not* a Perl programmer. I am  
moving to a new task to review a set of software written in Perl that  
accesses Java Batik (http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/batik/). Normally,  
I'd want to rewrite in Python just because I like Python so much.

However, surprisingly, this code isn't too bad at all -- that says  
something if a non-perl programmer can read it :)

Also, Batik is an Apache XML Graphics Project -- So, I need to decide  
on another infrastructure or to stick with what we have. Has any other  
python developers ran into this? Did you stick with what worked? Did  
you rewrite? Can PIL do SVG graphics?

Also note that we'd like real-time rendering (if possible) via URL  
(like Google Graph API).

This is an experienced based question - not a technology question.  
Sometimes it's better to reuse -- sometimes it's better to rewrite.
