All right. I sent some files to Tobias (above), and he very kindly made 
some experiments. Skencil could not do this (alas!) but Scribus did it 
almost correctly. Scribus seems to have some problem with alpha channel 
gradients, but the problem looks like a problem with some color 
correction/conversion, not a real SVG/PDF issue.

I will go on experimenting and report here if I find out something more.
