AFAIK the filter one is used when you open a .svg file (which opens in
Draw), and the svgio one is used to handle embedded SVG files.

svgio is the newer code, it came in via
44cfc7cb6533d827fd2d6e586d92c61d7d7f7a70, the filter one much older,
dates back to 2002. No idea if there are any plans (in the near future)
to fix svgio up enough that the filter one can be dropped.
