I've played a bit with making matplotlib generate SVG through the IPython
notebook, but the rendering quality is below that of PNG's.  That can probably
be fixed, or maybe it's a renderer problem.  (lines seem to be improperly
anti-aliased in Chrome/Firefox/Inkscape) Anyway I just ran into this jQuery
library for SVG which could be very useful for IPython interactive plots:


I'd be a big fan of SVG+JS plots.
