Yes, I can confirm batik-rasterizer, despite the name, made nice
vector-based PDF from SVG. Thanks, Nick.
So that's two options now, Inkscape and Batik.
Enough noise from me on this, I think.

Re: converting SVG
Have you looked at rsvg (http://librsvg.sourceforge.net/)?
I am not sure if it uses vector for pdf, but it might be worth a try?
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
: inkscape --without-gui --export-text-to-path

Prince a 20 KB PDF.

I'll check it, but I'm afraid it does render SVG as bitmap

Very true. For presentations, this may not be that much of an

Do let us know if you find a vector based converter.
The batik svg rasteriser page
This page describes the features of the SVG Rasterizer utility
that comes with the Batik distribution. The SVG Rasterizer is a
utility that can convert SVG files to a raster format. The tool
can convert individual files or sets of files, making it easy to
convert entire directories of SVG files. The provided formats
are JPEG, PNG and TIFF, however the design allows new formats to
be added easily. In addition, the rasterizer can (despite its
name) transcode to PDF.
I haven't used it at all, but that last sentence is suggestive. Maybe it
fits the bill?
