For lines I use Google Maps' GPolyLine object. See
implementation is browser-dependent as I understood. In IE it uses VML.
For all other browsers a png-image is drawn on Google's servers and
returned to the browser. (I don't think SVG is used in SVG-enabled
browsers like the latest FireFox). There's only 4 parameters GPolyLine:
an array of lat/lon points, a colour, a line width (I use 2px) and a
transparency. Thus this does not have to do with overlaying WMS.
In another project we are experimenting with overlaying transparent SWFs
