This stack SVGL 2015 rev02 is just an updated version of 
Ian McPhail's stack SVGL. As explained by Mark Waddingham:

"Actually, the first task I set Ian (one of our engineers) to do when 
he first joined was to first write something which converted a 
simple language I had designed ('SVGL') into vector graphic objects; 
and then write an SVG -> SVGL converter."

In another message thread, Mark Waddingham explained really well 
the issues of importing and displaying SVG:

Please, notice the following: 
Livecode vector graphics only use integers (1,2,3,4,5...) 
for displaying graphics strokes (borders). This limitation 
could be a barrier to import and display faithfully many 
professional illustrations created or exported to SVG format. 

A better option will be available for LC8 developers 
using the widget architecture that could render an 
exact display of imported SVG but for all LC7 users 
and developers, SVGL is still is our best choice.
