SVG vs PNG

Right. SVG in Matplotlib is NOT vector format and it has no sense to
use it instead of PNG or any others.

No, the svg produced by matplotlib is a vector format. (Just look at a
matplotlib-generated svg file in a text editor.) When you open a svg
file in gimp, gimp converts it into pixels, because gimp only works
with pixel-based images.

I seem to recall that someone created an emf (enhanced metafile)
backend in matplotlib. Have you tried that?
