What I was saying is that it is also missing from the OOo-2.3.0 release from 
OpenOffice.org.  If they are no longer maintaining it, then it stands to 
reason that the fedora rpms might not have it if and when they get to the 
2.3.0 stage.

There was, IIRC fairly recently, and article I read someplace because Inkscape 
had been taken back private, no longer gpl'd.  Lambasted them I believe was 
the terminology used.  I had it installed for a while and what it did, it did 
very well, but in my case, printer formatting was at best, broken.
