Argh, forgot one other related question:

At the moment, changing the symbol resets the full and outline color
to match the default fill/outline set in the SVG symbol. I'd like to
change this behaviour so that whatever user-set fill/outline color is
kept when changing the source svg symbol. Any objections?
