Yes, that's a good point. Somebody interested in importing sketch documents most
likely will have skencil installed already. otoh pstoedit needs to stay as it's
a pretty small package and the Postscript import is an important feature.
inkscape also has optional run-time dependencies on transfig and libwmf, but
unfortunately there's no way to document this properly...
