Maybe someone with .svg skills can help slim down the files.

Is possible to greatly reduce the size even without any svg skills, here is one example: accessories-calculatorL.svg has 491.5 KB, open it in Inkscape, select all, copy and paste in a new document, optionally a little ungrouping and grouping and vacuum defs and the result is a 52.4KB - http://fedora.nicubunu.ro/echo/accessories-calculatorL_1.svg

Well, how about 14.4 KB for the same image? I'll say *a lot* better...

I deleted all buttons except one, grouped the two shapes (white button face and its shadow), used "clone" to create the other buttons, unlinked the clone for the "enter" key, adjusted its shape (bigger height), vacuum defs and saved.

Conclusion: clone usage can be a real file size saver (coupled with vacuuming unused definitions).

491.5 -> 52.4 -> 14.4...Awesome Nicu! As for the shadow, it's added after, I can't get it to look right in the vector file...so it's not lost.
Will you be uploading this to the wiki?
