-libsvg is no longer maintained and has been replaced
-by librsvg upstream which is now in core
+libsvg was a split from librsvg, working to add a cairo backend for rendering
+SVG.  libsvg is no longer maintained and the author encourages librsvg to
+be used instead, which is now in core.  The API is not compatible but they
+have similar capabilities.
+This package was originally added to help developers working with compiz.
+Since then compiz has been patched to use librsvg instead making this package
+no longer necessary.
+See discussion referenced below:
