Hey, so we are looking at the size of test1 live cd images right now (of
course, things don't fit). One thing I notice is that some packages ship
huge svg icons, like the following:

203094 /usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor/scalable/status/gpm-phone-030.svg
229993 /usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor/scalable/status/gpm-phone-000.svg
274693 /usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor/scalable/status/gpm-keyboard-030.svg
284391 /usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor/scalable/status/gpm-phone-060.svg
287861 /usr/share/gnome-power-manager/icons/hicolor/scalable/status/gpm-phone-100.svg

I wonder if this list has the expertise and knows the tools to reduce
excess details in svgs like those ?

Try inkscape's vacuum defs (inkscape --vacuum-defs FILE). For example
for gmp-phone-030.svg it crops the size from 198.3 KB to 47.9 KB...

Yeah, I did the same: gpm-phone-100.svg decreased from 281.1 KB to 56.4 KB after vacuum defs and to 48.6 after saving as plain svg.

I will do a vacuum defs to all files and post it back.
