Why not just use "Inkscape" ?

It does SVG natively.
And runs very nicely on Mac.

Why not just use "Inkscape" ?

Exactly what I thought at first when I read this… Rather than hoping some over-simplified drawing process inside of an app that isn't made for drawing will actually return a vector or not, just do it right… Unfortunately, Inkscape is not ideal because you're forcing users to start up the X11 environment (most of said users probably have no other motive to run X)… But still, this solution seems even clunkier than starting X…

There's a way of compiling it without the X11 dependency, although it's marked "experimental" in the Inkscape Wiki

There's also consensus that the Inkscape team should produce a native Aqua version in future.

So if you're not au fait with MacPorts and rolling your own, keep your eyes peeled for updates.
