Better support for SVG paints

by Tomasz Boczkowski for Inkscape

The aim of this project is to improve SVG paint handling, with special regard to patterns and hatches. Currently fill and stroke patterns in Inkscape can be chosen from a textual combo box list. New widget for browsing patterns will be implemented. The implementation will allow support for other paint types. Additionally the support for SVG2 hatches will be added.
