The “plan” was to set an emoji font before having Imagick read the SVG, but that doesn’t seem to do much at all (on my instance).
I’ve since encountered two blogs that use SVGs with a single plain-text emoji in it as their favicons. Might (eventually) just try and swap out these for an actual image, then work off that (or stick with raw SVG).
