Dunno exactly, but I DO know, that inkscape's vacuum defs can strip a
lot of code, but also adds some of its own, which can be then stripped
using your script. Also the layers with display:none are not removed
with your script, or at least didn't work for some of them. Combination
of these three in one script would be good.

Probably cannot. I can only tell that there are some rendering issues
(e.g. gradients set wrong, etc., ordering of objects is also sometimes
wrong), but cannot tell, why and when. One thing that MIGHT be
automatised is fixing of positioning - the svg icons are usually
stretched to whole canvas, while the pngs are not. Also it seems that
Diana used to finish them in non vector format, because if you set them
right, they still differ a bit.
