Do people feel inkscape should natively output PDF?
<imho> Inkscape should support SVG natively and only SVG. That's our purpose. If we can redirect all filetype conversion efforts to software that has conversion as its purpose, there are gains for the whole community. </imho>
Do you mean "inkscape should only ever produce SVG files, and leave the conversion to other external programs"? or "We should really try and avoid implementing our own conversion libraries, and just use what's out there"? They seem to be two very different things, both from an inkscape-developer-effort perspective and a usability one.
