Thanks, Eric. 

I've decided to bite the bullet and install InkScape. However, I'm
having a hard time figuring out how to integrate this with org-mode. Org
generates the \includegraphics commands, so I assume it understands the
svg package, which in turn understands inkscape, but I don't know how to
connect them.  There are bits and pieces around the Web, but I haven't
found a coherent explanation of how to set this up. Anyone know of one?
