Are you planning to fix this soon? I am planning to file a sync bug in
Ubuntu if all the changes mentioned here are done.

I believe batik.jar is necessary as we often use un-versioned name
when specifying the build classpath in debian/rules. Can't really
comment about batik-1.7.jar. I just followed the convention that was
present in 1.6 version.
Also while you are at it, you might also want to take a look at the
following bugs logged against Ubuntu's 1.7 version to fix them in
Debian version if possible.
