I took a cursory look around for such a thing some time ago. I think
the best option is to use the Inkscape APIs. Inkscape is mostly
implemented in Python, and uses the lxml module, which is widely
regarded as being the best XML module for Python.

Inkscape allows you to write plugins in Python, and has libraries for
creating SVG. I haven't actually got a chance to really dive in and use
it, however, but it looks promising.
