The team in Debian familiar with librsvg decides that its end of life is
reached. I will not be comfortable with sidestepping that decision by
essentially taking over maintenance with Sugarlabs as new upstream!

GTK+ 2.x is on its way out. And _that_ is really what breaks activities
depending on GTK+ 2.x.
Activities using GTK+ 2.x is expected to stop working with Debian
I don't see any other (realistic) option than porting to modern stuff
like GTK+ 3.x and gir.
