Well *I'm* still curious. So I dug out where in svn the .svg's are... 
and at least for media-flash-memory-stick, there is indeed *not* junk in 
the file... all the background garbage is indeed the fault of the 
renderer, not the svg. (I wonder if Ariya might be onto something, if 
maybe something is being reused without being cleared, rather than a Qt 
problem. I must admit, it's hard to imagine how Qt would manage to 
render bunches of other icons behind the 'right' one.)

That sounds like a nice new feature, thanks! (Ok, I haven't looked, does 
KDE currently handle the decompression? I know we have .svgz's in use
