Guess why we moved from doing things this way to make librsvg2-2 depend
To make things clearer: there is no way to tell whether a program
actually needs librsvg2-common. Even testing it with and without
librsvg2-common installed wouldn't be enough, as it could e.g. make use
of themes that include SVG files.
Wouldn't that at most be a Recommends, or even a Suggests?
