That should actually be reasonably trivial. Most of the HTML documents in the test suite are the same green/red/grey documents. It's easy to make the same in SVG, and then replace all the HTML documents with the same hash with their corresponding SVGs, renaming the .html in the config files. That should leave a few to change manually, but nothing horrible.

Having a script to do the entirety of this (including, if possible, the mostly manual parts) would be great as it would help us maintain only one source.
