Problem statement : given a svg string, i want this to be
pdf. The svg file should NOT be created on the file system.
(If the svg can *automatically* scale based on the width of the pdf, then
its awsum!)

What is the memory footprint of ImageMagick? I dont like to have truck load
of apps to get
something done. ReportLab is a known name in creating pdfs and its installed
always, and svglib is just ONE single py file. But if ImageMagick is AWSUM,
then dont
mind giving it a try.
