Drawings Coming to Google Docs?

I’ve not got much information on this but it looks like some kind of drawing capabilities could be coming to Google Docs soon.

Using the following URLs, I was able to view different versions of a Google Docs drawing by adjusting the rev parameter to see various revisions, and the w and h parameters to adjust the width and height of the image on the fly (I’m not entirely sure what the ac parameter is for yet – perhaps “auto-crop” as it seems to remove the white-space from around the drawing):

Whether this image was created from scratch or picked and re-colored from a list of different shapes, I don’t know, but presumably this new feature is still being tested and we may not see it for a while, if at all.
