SVG is a drawing format. The metacity theme is not just drawing. You
could use SVG for the drawing part, but not for the geometry parts or
things like using GTK theme colors.

If you want to add SVG support for the drawing then please feel free
to send a patch, but you are going to be embedding SVG in the theme
file for the drawing, not using SVG for the whole theme.
