 It's generally usable for the desktop environments targetted by
 desktop-base and all three of KDE, GNOME and Xfce support it.

 We can build something more clever than alternatives that would use
 PNGs for other desktop environments, but this is not the main target at

 There's an important in using SVGs: it will show up nicely whatever the
 resolution, be it 800x600 or 1600x1200.  That's impossible with a PNG,
 it would kill low resolutions terminal, while SVGs do not.
