The filter one originated from a HackWeek project of Fridrich and
yours truly, and still has some value I think, with its attempted
direct mapping to ODF. There (was?) also an option to have a
standalone binary built for that.

Both implementations make different judgement calls, which are a bit
hard to consolidate. The svgio one is always erring towards perfect
rendering, whereas the filter one tries hard to maintain editability.
