This makes no sense.  Artwork is a final product and should not contain 
such information.

If there is a need to have copies that contain other information, then 
we need to have a separate place in SVN for them.

IAC, the problem is that the SVGZ icon files contain a lot of stuff that 
is not needed for editing, serves no useful function, and needs to be 

You also need to consider how much work would be needed to remove the 
editing information for each release.  For that reason alone, the SVGZ 
files should be cleaned up before they are committed to SVG TRUNK.

I find that there are also idiosyncrasies in InkScape (i.e. bugs 
perhaps).  IAC, after further work, I managed to further reduce the 
attached file to 2564 bytes.  The file in SVN is 11332 bytes.  That is 
over 77% and I did not remove any of the image information to do this. 
Clearly, this is an issue that needs to be addressed.
