The proximate conversation actually happened at ETech in early March  
of this year. I think we had all forgotten about this thread!

"merged platform" -- that's not quite what we're announcing. We using  
libraries from Dojo to help implement the DHTML runtime for  
OpenLaszlo. The Dojo libraries we will be using are quite low-level  
-- we're not using the widgets, for example, or the animators or  
effects. And Dojo won't be getting high-level libraries from  
OpenLaszlo -- just code that would go into our DHTML runtime anyway.

That said, we are certainly interested in SVG, and tracking  
developments like Safari's native SVG rendering support (http:// 
webkit.opendarwin.org/projects/svg/index.html). If anyone would like  
to get involved, the time is soon arriving when we'll have the  
infrastructure in place such that you could start working on SVG  
support in OpenLaszlo yourself.
