I'm curious what tools are being used for SVG authoring, and for the
conversion from SVG to other formats? Long ago, I did technical
illustrations under CorelDraw while writing manufacturing automation
software, and wish there were better vector-based drawing under Linux
(for free of course). SVG I think holds a lot of promise in this area,
but it doesn't seem to be sufficiently supported yet.
