Seemingly, nobody (including me) likes option 2 because it is the hardest to maintain. As to the other 2 options consider this:

1) In dune-grid we have pictures of the reference elements which are actually svg-files. Their png counterpart is also in the repository (though there is a command line tool for this conversion, see Apache Batik).

3) We could make WML a hard dependency for everybody using the svn-version (and disallow building the documentation from the tarball).

I think we learned by now that maintaining multiple options is very expensive to maintain. So the solution should be as simple as possible. This means that either everybody has WML installed (option 3 + comment) or just the guys changing the WML files (option 1).

I personally prefer option 1, because it is less restrictive for the developers.
