To elaborate on what I wrote. All svg apps can render svg to pixel, if alone
to print them to the screen. A simple script, using that capability, that
would render svgs to pngs in a batch operation, possibly to all the sizes KDE
icons need, would be very helpfull. Then at design level rendering the pngs
would be simple.
(And since artists are sometimes unhandy, it would be good to write the pngs
to a timestamped directory, preventing overwriting of already repaired
