I believe that PIL is for bitmap images only, and as such, SVG isn't
supported. If you look in the appendix "Image File Formats" of the PIL
you'll see that SVG isn't documented as being supported.

I also have some interest in vector graphics processing. (Although
it's fairly casual so far).
One specific thing I would like to be able to do is to take a bitmap
format of a line image (a scanned copy of a line drawing, to be
specific) and convert it to vector format. I realise that this isn't a
trivial task (edge detection, and so on) but are there any tools or
libraries that will do this? I haven't found any support in PIL for
this, but maybe I've missed something...
