with introduction of iconcache, why is there still generated .png's in svn?
they take 40 mb for (oxygen), while .svgz's take 40 mb too
(but .svgz's can be converted to plain .svg's by distros to take advantage of solid compression --package will take no more than 10mb--,
converting them back to .svgz in post-install script; btw: distros like slax will use plain .svg's as they use compression on another level)

i mean, look at ftp://ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/unstable/3.92/src/kdelibs-3.92.0.tar.bz2 (at that time pics were in kdelibs).
aint you scary of 55 mb size package?
