External converters are probably insufficient for vector graphics, since it is unclear how to specify the width and height. Some new mechanism would be needed here, if we want optimal resolution.

The inkscape converter definition in ./TeXmacs/progs/convert/images/init-images.scm:

(converter svg-file postscript-file
(:require (url-exists-in-path? "inkscape"))
(:shell "inkscape" "-z" "-f" from "-P" to))

is pretty fine; in outputting postscript it is resolution neutral.

The rsvg definition (which is preferred by TeXmacs and used during postscript definition) is rotten:

(converter svg-file png-file
(:require (url-exists-in-path? "rsvg"))
(:shell "rsvg" "-f png" from to))

It allows rsvg to choose the generated output size regardless of the TeXmacs global dpi or graphics size.

And I find the resolution to be pretty rotten. I think that --dpi-x and --dpi-y should be specified to the global dpi (for the benefit of any px units in the svg) and also -w and -h should be specified as given in the <postscript|...> node.

I'm still trying to locate the implementation of the <postscript tag so I can hazard a patch. Best candidate so far is image->postscript in ./TeXmacs/progs/kernel/texmacs/tm-convert.scm but I'm not convinced.
