Thanks for the input Nicu. I will proceed using exec calls to inkscape. 
I will isolate the exec calls as much as possible so that we can replace 
them in the future with something else.

I did a little research into making a PHP interface for inkscape. I 
found that there is an inkscape interface for perl and python, and they 
use software called SWIG to help create the wrappers needed. SWIG 
supports PHP, so that might be a relatively painless route to take in 
the future.
