Not sure about the svg (xml) parsing/editing, the rest should be however
possible with bash. The original script by jimmac [1] is written in Ruby
so I took it as an opportunity to try new programming language and in
the process I grew to love it :-D The syntax is pretty efficient and I
like that it's truly object oriented language (in short, everything is
object in ruby) ;-)
