svg2pdf, which also uses cairo and opacity is rendered fine, so why
FireFox is not respecting opacity attributes, if it is using cairo
for the conversion, I don't know. On the other hand svg2pdf/cairo
gives a bus error if any text is included in the svg, which is a
severe limitation. Nevertheless it is serving my purposes pretty
well at the moment.
people reported that print directly to paper works well. then it seems
to be related to my pdf print driver (althouh it is adobe acrobat).
maybe not a FF bug!

Acrobat, so I think it may be a FireFox omission.
