Bug Description

When objects are grouped and the whole group is clipped by a single square, no clipping information is present when exported to xaml.

To reproduce:
-Start inkscape.
-Draw 3 yellow squares using the rectangle tool.
-Group all 3 shapes together.
-Draw a 4th square partially on top of the other squares.
-Put the 4th square on top of the z order.
-Select all 5 squares.
-Go to Object->Clip->Set.
-Save a copy as xaml.
-Open the xaml file.
-Note that there is a clipPath present, but this is not used anywhere.

The xaml spec supports clipping of groups using this format:
<Canvas Name="g4217" Clip="{StaticResource clipPath4225}" >

Inkscape: v0.91
OS: Win 7

Activating line 83 (currently commented out) seems to fix the issue. See At least with the attached test file.

For what I understand, the template call was commented a long time ago, when the clip feature was not completely implemented.
Test for regressions required...

Fixed in the trunk, revision 13967.

@elecman - You can test the new version by replacing your svg2xaml.xsl file (in the share/extensions folder) with the one available in the trunk (
