Well, even if you really have to do that, there would still be an
advantage to having fixed names and an SVG template. It just wouldn't be
the source of _all_ final images, then.

Either the border values have to specified separately (a GUI tool could
help), or perhaps you could have a layer with rectangles in the SVG and
have a script that queries for their dimensions.

Aren't there elements where stretch is pretty much a must? Or do you
have an example of an element that would have to be stretched in one of
them, but not another?
