Along with it, presumably, a dependency on some SVG library or
other. That brings up the question whether the SVG adds substantial
functionality that cannot easily be had by, oh, converting the pictures
used to PNG or something. I'd like to hear a bit about the rationale.

A possible benefit of easing resizing was mentioned somewhere, but
how much actual benefit is to be expected in the foreseeable future?
IE, who will implement it, when? :-)
