ok, good point. IMO & in the spirit of the thing, we should err on the
side of open document formats. :-)

fwiw you can touch up PDF layouts in newer versions of Inkscape, and fix
a word or two using pdftk to extract the inner postscript which can then
be edited using your favourite industrial strength text editor before
putting it back into the pdf container with pdftk again (or ps2pdf I guess). Only good for minor tweaks though.
