Hi. Work on that is of interest. I'm +1 on investigations around
browser event-based solutions, the geometry intersection-based option
having issues with points as you pointed out in the previous thread.
The idea of having all vector layers within one SVG/VML tag sounds
worth investigating to me. If you're decided to start working on that
i'd recommend creating a sandbox, this will make your work visible and
encourage collaboration. On a side note there's a big renderer patch
waiting for review in the trunk, you may want to either wait for this
patch to be in trunk or apply it to your sandbox, the same comment may
apply to the canvas patch. Thanks. Eric
