Inkscape's PDF+LaTeX

Holy crap this is excellent. I have been looking for a way to use SVG in LaTeX and this is better than I could have hoped for, I don't get to \includegraphics{myfile.svg} but when I include the PDF that Inkscape generates it can have LaTeX source for text!

I found this from an ubuntuforums post. It has in it this link to a PDF on Inkscape's site which gives the usage and some extras. The Inkscape wiki page is here.

I would still like to directly use SVG images but oh well. Eventually when I can get a good TikZ exporter from an SVG editor this may all be moot, but for now this is excellent.
