The KiCad part converter exports a blank SVG

Steps I took that resulted in the problem:

I used the command fritzing -kicad . inside of a KiCad part folder

What I expected should have happened instead:

It produces an empty SVG. I was expecting an SVG footprint that I could use to make a part.

My version of Fritzing and my operating system:

fritzing 0.9.4 and MacOS Big Sur on an Apple M1 chip

The kicad footprint converter hasn’t been updated in a long time and uses the old footprint format (and no longer appears to work even for that!) Hopefully at some point one of us will get time to work on converting it to the new kicad format, but I am not aware of any on going work yet.
