Cool, although we need to take some care here - by 'request' does this
mean it is a wish or is it actually required in the provisioning
license? If it is required to include attribution, we need to look more
closely at it. If it's optional, then it's probably cool.

Hrm, you're probably right that there's some bugs here in several apps.
Please make judicious use of the Inkscape bug tracker for all problems
you find here, and we'll work through them. A lot of these tools have
not yet been thoroughly tested against each other, but we work closely
together (literally - kees is within 20 feet of my cube), so bug reports
will have the desired effect.

It looks like your files got accepted by the system, so should appear in
the release. Please double check them to make sure the scripts are
doing okay. And give me suggestions for how to make it better.
