I think that would be a bit premature at this point--O'Reilly will be
redoing all of our graphics for in preparation for publishing the
printed book. I don't want to stop you from making nice SVG graphics
(provided that you can get FOP to squirt them into the PDF, but you
should know that they will likely be replaced at some point in the
future.
