The SVG logo of the W3C page is something I made up in a hurry because
I needed one. Its unclear if it has any official standing and it seems
clear most people think it sucks.

OK, here is the SVG that the PNG on the website was made from. Its
called SVGlogo-new because I tweaked the original one in November 2001
to conform to SVG 1.0.

I actually have no problem with it if it is being used to promote SVG.
The SVG WG is currently looking at logos, I might add (but designed by
real graphics artists not by geeks in a hurry).

Nice application. I realize librsvg is intended as a component but its
nice to be able to test it and see what it can do.
