Hi Thorsten,

Good to hear that this is already fixed :).

Well if using librsvg solves these issues it's nice that this duplication of effort can be avoided.

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 ...
