I found I had no svg mailcap view at all and thought something is better
than nothing :-).

priority=2 per the rest of the display program entries should be low

That could be handled by "test" in the mailcap, if something fast but
accurate.  I suppose asking dpkg whether fully installed state would be
most accurate, but perhaps a file check is enough

   ... && test -e /usr/share/doc/libmagickcore5-extra/copyright
