There are actually some things that do not import svg images directly. TK
is one of them. I am finding there are also xdg tools ment for installing
icon themes etc that don't deal with svgs either.

Anyway, I use tk/tcl quite a bit for quick gui utilities. I have made
scripts that read the *.desktop file and use the icon as a button to start
that app. It doesn't work if the icon is an SVG.. So I now know how to
save an svg to a temp png file so I can import it for display.
