        Filters are worth a try, but you might find that
feComponentTransfer is faster and easier to work with.

      This could work but it involves a lot more work than the 
feComponentTransfer case (which is just a simple table lookup).

        This actually sounds like an excellent place to use CSS style 
The simplest way (although perhaps not the fastest) would be to use a 
with both descendent, attribute and class bits.  Something like

        svg[invert=false] .fill { fill: black }
        svg[invert=true]  .fill { fill: white }

        svg[invert=false] .fillStroke { fill: black; stroke: white }
        svg[invert=true]  .fillStroke { fill: white; stroke: black }

        The other possible option would be to use alternate Style sheets
that do something similar (might be a little faster).

        Then simply setting the 'invert' attribute on the root SVG element
should cause the colors to swap for all of the elements with an 
'class' attribute.
