in the patch2svg-plugin folder you find an "autoexport.pd" abstraction, 
that will export all currently open canvases as an SVG - and then quit 
Pd (the idea was to use this in a script).

the filenames are created automatically based on the canvas title and 
the window-id. (this is somehow tweakable - but not very much).

it's hard to provide anything more sophisticated without also writing an 
accompanying external (which needs to be compiled for all the archs) - i 
don't think this is worth it.
