The main ppoint about adding SVG path import/export was to allow for
better integration with Sodipodi and other vector applications. The
new functionality allows you for example to create a graphics in an
vector application, export it as SVG, import it into GIMP and do some
pixel-manipulation to fine-tune the result. The fact that you get the
paths imported into GIMP should make this task easier since you can
for example use them to create selections.
