So again, the Inkscape file versioning discussion pops up. I think it
would be good to have a proper "upgrading" system in place, that converts any
old-style stuff to new-style before fully loading a file, because we are likely to run

Agreed. If I'm not mistaken, we need to have an upgrading mechanism in
place because we will at least run into it for the conversion of 3d
boxes as well and possibly grids too (I am unaware of how they're
written to the doc wrt setting the origin), obviously we'll have other
needs down the road as well. A key thing is we will need to send out a
warning to the devel & user list prior to committing to trunk so
people have a heads up (if they work between nightly/trunk builds and
stable builds, not having surprises is good).
