Attached is a tarball with *all* the files in the directory vacuumed and 
saved as plain svg. The size went down from 3.0 MB to 986.0 KB.

We can make it even smaller using compressed SVG (.svgz, basically SVG 
with gzip compression, SVG being text the compression is very effective) 
but 1. I don't know if we support .svgz for scalable icons and 2. is 
this useful? they are stored on CD compressed inside a rpm.
