#130 SVG export is terrible

When exporting a design as SVG, I expect the arcs / lines / ... to be exported as the corresponding SVG object and only use 'rasterizing into small lines' as a very last resort ...

As it currently is, the svg export is pretty useless IMHO. For example a svg exported by librecad with a good enough resolution to be lasercut, the file is 700k and can't be edited by any SVG editor due to its structure. OTOH, the same svg produced by inkscape is 14k and contains the proper 'native' svg objects.

    I feel this is more about feature implementation for SVG. Moved to feature request tracker
