Feature Request: Convert tspan to text elements for SVG tiny

Bug Description

Hi Jeff,

I am using the qtsoftware SVG renderer to display Inkscape generated SVG content. I am using your scour tool to clean up the Inkscape files before importing.

Unfortunately, qtsoftware is a SVG tiny renderer and thus cannot use positional attributes within tspan elements, which Inkscape is using quite a lot for multiline text.

I wonder if there could be a SVG scour option to convert tspan elements into regular text elements that a SVG tiny renderer could display.

I currently do this manually by converting the parent text elements to a g (group) element that holds all the text-related attributes, then I convert all the tspan elements to text elements.

Converting the parent text into a group seems like a much better solution than what I was thinking (just make the tspans into text elements).

There is another Bug: Scour makes group tags in text tags between span tags, so for example some renders can't display this text, like librsvg.
