Vector is better suited to scaling, but it has to go into a gimp layer. 
I'm not sure how easy/hard it would be to export SVG into gimp. So far 
as I know, there is not an easy way. But that leaves a question for some 
of our gimp experts: Is there any SVG support in gimp, or is any 
planned? That would make my day if gimp could import and/or export SVG.
