How does the date thing work?  Is it sufficient to:
 convert werewolf8_color.svg werewolf8_color.png

automatically counts down?  if so that should be easy to get running.

Well you'd have to input the number to the SVG generation script too so we need a script with smarts to figure out what the day value should be.

Also I think convert would work fine for Nicu's artwork but the banner I did will need to be modified to work with convert (only comes out right if you use command-line inkscape) - it's totally do-able just a little less blingy.

No, I don't think it would work for the _color_ version (but I can simplify it, remove gradients and drop shadow - they are less noticeable when the image is exported at a small size as it should).

You know, we can get to an alternate route: export the bitmap one time and then add the counter with imagemagick or gd and even leave out all the font availability problem by creating pre-rendered images for all the possible digits, from 0 to 9 (yes, it is old school compared with modifying the SVG on the fly, but is tried and true).
