Hi Jason - 

I see that COLLADA is listed as one of the choices for vector output, but I would argue that the selection of another choice of format in the poll shouldn't exclude it from consideration as development-worthy. As an open 3D format, it is useful for applications involving user interaction and 3D viewing, whereas SVG and EPS, etc., are primarily used to create scaleable 2D images.  I would love to see both COLLADA and SVG export as features in future versions of PyMOL.

As always, thanks for considering user input in decisions about new features!

There seems to be some significant interest in vector graphics output.
To track this, I created a poll on the PyMOL website
(http://pymol.org/vector_poll) where you can cast your vote on which
format you prefer. Poll results will help advise development efforts.
