Ok, got Internet here.

Just tried it.  Scaling the resulting graphic makes very clear that the
import into odt did not happen as a scalable image, but merely as a
bitmap.  Anything else would have surprised me with EPS.  Import via PDF
(which is readable without requiring a PostScript interpreter) or SVG
does not suffer this problem, but is broken by default.

So no, taking EPS graphics is not an option for moving the kaboodle into
a DTP system via OpenOffice.  It is no longer vector graphics after
that.  Perhaps some form of WMF/EMF/whatever could work, but converters
for those are sparse under Linux.
