Ok, I've pushed the changes to the preinstalled svg files and closed
off #10908 (yay!). Note that unfortunately there's some symbols I
haven't been able to update as they had non-white fill or non-black
outline defaults. I can't standardise these symbols without
potentially breaking their use in other parts of QGIS, eg as a
composer image. After 2.12 I'll try and make the change so that
fill/outline color for SVGs can be set for composer picture items, and
that should then allow me to update these remaining symbols.

I don't think SVG and the other markers should be combined. Ellipse
and simple markers, maybe, since there's lots of overlap there. But I
think SVG markers are a different beast and especially when we add
support for raster image markers it's good to be able to have SVG
markers as their own seperate option.

Definitely - I hate this kind of inconsistency. I'll do this.
