Hi, Throsten,

I express thanks for your review.
I was bit busy with school work. But here are updated patches.
0001 and 0003 are almost same as previous.

I found the way to reproduce the stepping gradients with native gradients.
# Simply adding gradient stops as needed.
So 0002 patch uses native gradients for both smooth and non-smooth gradients.

It's very interesting and has a potential to resolve many long standing issues.
While it's really attractive, I would like to continue to improve the
current filter.
LibreOffice and its predecessors have never produced an SVG
preserving, at least, visual appearances.
Improving the current filter is the shortest path to make LibreOffice
export visual identical SVG files in a short term.
# I know the structure of an SVG produced by the current filter is mess.
