 By adding image/svg-xml to the mime-types list in activity/activity.info,
 you should be able to open SVG files in Imageviewer.

 Please see related ticket 1772 re a discussion about doing the same for

 Perhaps Imageviewer should be the default activity: mime.defaults in
 /usr/share/sugar/data (sugar/data/mime.defaults). But certainly Paint,
 which changes the format from SVG to PNG should not be the default. And
 you definitely want to be able to open SVGs in Browse, if only to be able
 to take advantage of View Source.

 I am marking this as Critical since user data is lost under the current
 conditions where Paint is the only option.
