I'm talking about having the SVG in a notecard or a text string sent
from an LSL call like "llRenderSVG()". It could be prototyped on the
open source client by using a special texture UUID that would tell the
client to pull down a notecard with the name "svg$face". Making it
dynamic would require explicit LSL and protocol support. Eg:
llRenderSVG(face, "<rect width='300' height='100'
I'd like something simpler, too, just a plain "llRenderText()", but it
might in this case be easier to run before you walk.
I am not in favor of using HTTP for rendering anything on a prim face,
because if such a feature was implemented it would make stalking folks
through web-bugs into something that griefers could routinely use...
instead of something mainly used by landowners to implement IP-based
ban lists, and that's already a bad precedent.
