(a) we were busy, understaffed and not tracking issues properly back then :-(
(b) we were kind of hoping the original author would deal with SVG issues.

However, we did put in one earlier patch on renderSVG recently and are starting
to pay more attention. These sound like sensible changes so we'll give them a
quick test and include one or the other shortly.

This has been logged in the tracker as issue 1020:

I think it makes sense if we hold off on the 2.3 release for a few more days and
try to include this.
