Just a nitpick, but you're probably referring to libsvg-cairo as opposed
to xsvg? xsvg (as an SVG viewer frontend) actually seems more advanced
than librsvg's rsvg-view, due to its panning and zooming functionality.
librsvg on the other hand has a Mozilla plugin which I think is great.
What I'd love to see is:
running the xsvg frontend,
using librsvg's library,
running atop the cairo backend :)
Something to kill time while waiting for Mozilla to include native SVG
support by default.
