[Therion] Converting SVG files to Therion th2 format

Hi Wookey,

yes that would be nice!

It would also speed up the reverse engineering process dramatically,  
since one then could generate one "super scrap" (1 -2 km length) of  
all extracted layers and simply break it up into smaller scraps,  

Meanwhile, I have gained more experience with the svg to th2  
conversion and it works surprisingly well even with the large Corel  
Draw maps.
I have now changed my strategy a bit and manually extract all symbols  
of one kind (e.g. rocks, contour lines) using Inkscape and save them  
as a separate th2 files with the correct line description. Then I  
combine everything in a single th2 file using a text editor.

However, I had to break up one 1 km section into two 500 m scraps  
since editing the very large scrap turned out to be too slow with the  
Therion map editor.

So I guess the suggested scrap limit of ~100 m is mainly based on  
editing speed.
