It won't be; librsvg follows the standard GNOME pattern of keeping API
stability by keeping deprecated features while adding new ones. The
next change would be a separate librsvg3, probably later this year when
glib and gtk+ 3.0 are released.
Furthermore, neither ImageMagick nor libAfterImage care about gtk's
ability to load the svgs -- they don't need

Despite the path, it is really a plugin for GdkPixbuf and does not
depend on GTK+. Hence, there are no extra dependencies for the SVG
loader, since librsvg2 itself also depends on libgdk_pixbuf2.0.
OTOH I'm not opposed to separating the loader into its own package.
I think svg_loader* and the postinstall script should go into a new
gdk-pixbuf2.0-svg would be more accurate, and this naming scheme is also
used by the WMF loader provided by libwmf.

The docs in $pkgdocdir are the standard COPYING/NEWS/README docs that
all users should receive, but the html docs in librsvg2-devel are
gtk-doc API documentation that would only be of interest to developers
Otherwise, rebuilds fine from source and passes its builtin testsuite.
Thanks for the review,
