oxygen shows the problems, but so will any icon that uses SVG features that 
QSvgRenderer doesn't support. i don't think that many other svg themes have 
overly complex icons, though.

it's not really so much about only supporting Tiny; it's more that the way it 
parses and then processes the elements makes things like blur nearly 
impossible. it will need some large surgery to get such filters working.

not that it isn't worth it .... it's just finding a way to convince TT that it 
is worth it.

agreed; it does mean making huge changes to QSvgRenderer, though.
