Well, I thought about another case: .svg file is newer than .png. I don't
want to regen new png, and regen it again after `svn revert`, and regen
it again... ;) I have at least one machine which: 1) has no inkscape
installed; 2) is to slow to regenerate pngs.

PS. I don't know about current behavior, but it does not enforce me to
use inkscape during the build.
