Thanks, this answers my question: I didn't quite get the fact that I had
to put in two calls to the subroutines (instead of one to svgexport). Now
it works perfectly (I did use the CVS version, just compiling it via
dpkg-buildpackage), although I have some trouble with importing the
results into sketch. I'll have to check this a bit more thouroughly,
though before filing any reports.

Thanks again,
