The Inkscape font has also been mentioned as something we might want to change. I'll put that up for discussion after "Draw Freely" since there is more reason to change the scripty font than the all-caps INKSCAPE font (which, if proprietary can be changed to nearly anything with roman caps, if we still like it). I will post a different message to the inkscape-user mailing list after collecting votes from this mailing list. It will be fun to see the difference in votes. :)
