Perhaps that is indeed the way to go. I would have personally thought
injecting a stylesheet "path { fill: #fff }" where the color would be
taken from text[NORMAL] or somesuch would be more appropriate? This
would enable us to color a specific part of the symbol differently
(think about a last bar of battery-critical). Just have that part of
the SVG labeled 'warning' and then do something like
"path[inkscape:label='warning'] { fill: #f00 } where that would be
mapped from gtkrc (either a new named color @warning or

But perhaps treating the whole symbol as a single color is better. The
contrast issues have been largely solved for text, so treating these
as text would probably be best.
