I don't think the discussion is about your idea that software 
engineering should be done like it is done in the games industry.

Path rendering on the GPU is a topic that is covered relatively 
frequently in papers the past decade so… more than one approach.

If the SVG renderer in the browser is relevant? Depends. SVG is 
animated through CSS, so the browser must be able to redraw on 
every frame. For some interfaces it certainly would be relevant, 
but I don't think Robert is aiming for that type of interface.

Anyway, for some interfaces like for VST plugins, you don't need 
very fancy options. Just blitting and a bit of realtime 
line-drawing. But portability is desired, so JUCE appears to be 
popular. If you Robert creates something simpler than JUCE, but 
with the same portability, then it could be very useful.
