I notice that some of the renderers provide options for controlling the
DPI settings. I'd welcome advice on how best to configure this.
Another issue I ran into was that the behavior of the renderers when
specifying the width but not the height varies quite a bit, as you can
see from the pngs. Unfortunately, the behavior when you specify
arbitrary height and width also varies quite a bit from program to
program, so that isn't a solution either...
This is the reason that the mdiff scores are so high for Inkscape; it's
height/width handling is more inconsistent with the other renderers than
they are with each other.
Anyway, I think it could be coded around, but I decided to punt on the
issue for now. Ideally, we'd get all the renderers to behave similarly.
More realistically, I think it may be necessary to pre-calculate the
aspect ratio and set height and width accordingly, but I didn't have a
clear idea on implementation so decided to leave it for a future
