Thanks Jeff!

I've already added it to the dev Inkscape repo yesterday...

There is a small error (already fixed in the Inskcape version) that prevents scour from working as an extension. In, dest="viewboxing" and in, dest="enable_viewboxing". I've changed so that it always uses "enable_viewboxing" instead of "viewboxing".

Patched version attached.
