Custom titles are of course better.  For doing the quick addition of
metadata I pretty much just gave everything the same title.  Ideally
they should have unique ones, but of course I figure the author will
prefer to choose that.

I just put it at the end because it was simpler for my script.  It
actually doesn't matter where it goes, and in fact a lot of people put
it right after the <svg> tag, which works fine.
