server side script and client side script for SVG????

Hello experts,

This is not for a specifice question, but rather an invitation for discussion:

The general topic is: scripting in SVG.

I've read few scripting examples with SVG, and what I've seen is look like they are all client-side script to be interepreted by the client browser (or more accurately the SVG viewer plug-in).

so my question 1) are there instances when server side script is useful or really needed or the only choice for scripting SVG (examples, discussions, especially working examples are greatly appreciated).

I'll try to split the points among relevant answers, with more weight to responses with "interesting discussions", concrete examples...

Thanks,
dttai
