Re: converting SVG
1. Prince (http://www.princexml.com) does SVG to PDF as vector graphics from the command line, very nicely. Too bad it's proprietary.
: prince drawing.svg drawing.pdf
2. Ask Inkscape -- it's free software; unfortunately, the result is rasterized.
: inkscape --without-gui --export-text-to-path --export-eps=drawing.eps drawing.svg
>From a sample 52 KB SVG file, Inkscape gives me a 420 KB EPS and Prince a 20 KB PDF.

I'll check it, but I'm afraid it does render SVG as bitmap first,
and then "converts", or rather encapsulates, it to EPS/PDF. ImageMagick
is a bitmap manipulation tool after all.
Very true. For presentations, this may not be that much of an issue
(given the resolution of many data projectors)... but it's a very valid
Do let us know if you find a vector based converter.
