Hi Alex,

beyond what Michael said - the bug you quote above is fixed for LO
3.5 already, as we're using a librsvg-based svg renderer now to
handle the 'embed as image' case.

As for what can possibly be reused from the AOO(I) code, let us see
when the implementation is done. librsvg, FWIW, is a
production-ready, complete implementation, with quite some years of
development - it will take some time to match it ...
