Both have its own uses. svgio is all about rendering fidelity and
supports more svg features however the "filter/source/svg" filter
tries to use standard features and attributes available in LO as much
as possible - which is useful when you want to edit the shapes . For
example you can see this with gradient shapes - svgio imports the
shape correctly but is useless if you want to change the gradient.
