Inkscape uses Cairo AFAIK.

Are we actually using svg for the icons? I was under the
impression the artists are exporting them to PNG to various
sizes (under the standard icon themes in
/usr/share/gnome/icons follow) so that they match the pixel

Even if the SVG renderer is perfect and flawless, it will
never beat the artist hand-tweaking the artwork to render
within the pixel grid per icon size.
