I'm interested in server-side SVG to PNG rendering for web
application servers. I'm watching librsvg with interest to see how
increasingly comprehensive svg coverage balances out with gnome and other
library dependencies.

Would a --with-png compile-time option eventually facilitate a
complementary --without-x for libcairo?
