The C API exposed by resvg can also only do rendering. There's some hints 
about there being a parse tree in the C API but there are no functions to 
actually use it. So if you want to do anything but rendering, you'd need to 
write it in rust and expose it yourself, which is doable, but doesn't make 
resvg exactly a drop-in replacement for QtSVG.
