That's easy to do, but I don't understand how it would help - AFAICT
gtk3 does not have any code to link against librsvg. Can you please
explain what this would improve and how?

Yes, you are right. I'm sorry I got it wrong. I thought the
gdk-pixbuf2 had the svg loader, but it's in librsvg. I don't
understand why is it not in gdk-pixbuf2, like the rest. And that's
why librsvg depends on gdk-pixbuf2, and not the other way, like it
does already with jpg, png &c.  And all in the same proyect. Crazy
, crazy little gnome.

Librsvg has to be added to each package that uses svg icons. These
are some I tested when adding support for a Huion tablet:


People don't notice it because other applications like gimp has the
dependency on librsvg already.
