Dunno if anybody else was doing, and I'm busy this month.  Feel free to
go ahead with that.

Again, I have no objections.

In the context of this thread, the freedesktop.org specs say that the
user specifies the size in pixels of icons that they want, and for
svg's, that means we need to render to that particular size.  There is
a default icon size of 48x48 if the user didn't specify a size.

Outside of the context of this thread, sure use the intrinsic size if
you need to.
