I don't know whether it's because of the original icon set I chose
(Nuvola), but my icons work just fine at different scales, even down to
16x16. I've created many more icons based on the original Nuvola ones. I
often go in and hand-edit the SVG to keep it simple, so I suspect I'm
not using any features that aren't covered by SvgTiny. Even those I
haven't edited (straight output from Inkscape) have worked fine.
For lots of programmers working on small projects without a resident
artist, the current SVG support in QImage has been a huge blessing,
giving us a lot of flexibility without the need to generate and
distribute huge icon collections.
