Why are svg files not made smaller using scour?

Sorry, missunderstood you.  To reduce file sizes on all icons I use to run
a script of my own that Inkscape itself healthy to clean them. I use that
script when updating a whole icon folder.

But I must warn you that reducing "too much" the svg files may damage some
xml attributes and become ugly or totally useless. There are some svg
attributes that I intentionally put in an icon that "shrinkers" ignore.
