@Grace, yes I would agree but it’s all about community interest, and the underlying things can be included if there’s a tasty carrot. I consider the underlying foundational fixes to be as appetizing as cardboard to users, and the SVG image feature gets people excited (and has done so for many years) so it’s the carrot. This is the secret to successful fundraisers, finding the appropriate carrot.
I would contribute to this feature. I use the approach of coding the image name into the source code and re-compiling quite a bit!
