[OpenLayers-Dev] Developement of an external vector symbol

I'm afraid I can't offer an opinion on your languages challenge.  It
would be great if there was a pre-existing file-format for vector
symbols, then we just specify filenames rather than hard-code the
vectored shapes.

I'm currenlty working on provision of per-entry icons (images) for
georss feeds. [1].  I've made good progress, but may have to pause my
efforts for the next 7 days, see my demo at: [2].   Had you considered
using the symbols on a per-entry fashion in a georss feed?  I suspect
it's fortunate I've got a self-induced development pause: it would
seem to be worth offering per-entry symbols as well as icons.

Appreciate your thoughts/opinions.
