7 Avoiding librsvg used to be difficult because it's required by our GTK
8 icon packages to render PNGs from SVGs. Luckily dilfridge's binrepo
9 now makes it easy to download pre-rendered icons, and there's no
10 security/performance/legal concerns with pre-rendered PNGs, so using
11 them shouldn't present any moral dilemmata. You mainly just have to
12 replace Firefox, Thunderbird, and GIMP.
