returns SVG.Bare which inherits from SVG.Element

Not unlike the group element, the symbol element is a container element. The only difference between symbols and groups is that symbols are not rendered. Therefore a symbol element is ideal in combination with the use element:

var symbol = draw.symbol()
symbol.rect(100, 100).fill('#f09')

var use  = draw.use(symbol).move(200, 200)
