For Debian the package name would be different, due to a naming policy
for Python modules.

As far as I recall (and according to my note in its changelog) it only
needs pyrsvg from that package.
I remember now that you present it to me, that I've read that bugreport
during my researching dependencies: I judged back then that oh well, I
am not alone in wanting this split, but since that bugreport has been
hanging there for more than a year there's probably no point in pursuing
It is great if you are more optimistic than me and could push it. Thanks
for your effort here!
A small hint: You can use shorter links to Debian bugreports - like
