rsvg-load.[ch] are no more. All the loading code has been moved to #rustlang.
I’m sorry to post a link to surveillance capitalist YouTube but you need to watch this speech by Hannah Gadsby in full. In under eight minutes, not only does she give a masterclass in intersectional feminism but also a biting critique of the hypocrisy at the heart of neoliberalism.

Cool fact about Linux: I can still test three different browser engines: Blink (via Chrome), Gecko (via Firefox), and WebKit (via Epiphany Browser). There are subtle differences between Epiphany and Safari (no Web Payments, no Service Worker, no -webkit-backdrop-filter, etc.) but it's pretty close.
That's pretty good desktop coverage, and I can debug Chrome and Firefox on Android using ADB, as well as Safari on iOS using https://github.com/RemoteDebug/remotedebug-ios-webkit-adapter/. Linux is not bad for web development.
@nolan There's an Epiphany Tech Preview that might be worth testing too: https://blogs.gnome.org/mcatanzaro/2018/01/24/announcing-epiphany-technology-preview/

As of a few minutes ago, less than 20% of librsvg's code remains in C: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/librsvg/graphs/master/charts
Most of the calls to libxml2 are done from #rustlang now. All the loading code will be in Rust soon.
