Whyyyy does inkscape add so much metadata to svg files?! Just opening and saving one of the icons at work makes it double in size.

I just want to scale*, move*, trim and mirror, surely there's a less crufty tool for such modifications of svg files.

(*as in actually change the coordinates of the elements, not just embedding matrix transforms in it)


I'm back dealing with this crap again.

I thought ImageMagick might be able to handle svgs. Nope. It tries, but fails partway through and just writes a broken xml file.
