Bug Description

if we add an attribute "class" to any svg element (with the inkscape xml editor), and when saved as inkscape svg, the "class" attributes are saved in the svg file. but if we save as plain svg, the class attributes are removed.

This issue is having effect on us with gnome-icon-theme-symbolic where we export a single sheet of icons into indivual plain svgs. We rely on classes to recolor parts of icons with an external stylesheet. Just trying to put some weight on importance :)

Setting a class element for a path is still not saved in plain svg with version 0.48. So basically this is a data loss bug.

Fix in r13260. The plain svg export is now no longer dependant on updateRepr to both clone the xml tree AND remove sodipodi elements. Using it in this way was very broken.

The prune method was improved to include removing any inkscape/sodipodi elements and not just attributes.

The plain-svg output will still not include PI nodes or comments before the root element until the xml code has a duplicate method that can clone the entire document node.
