Forgot to add: in the 'Save as...' dialog, on the left side under places
you find the entry 'templates'. You can save any open document directly
as a user template from within Inkscape. The new template is then added
automatically to the list under 'File > New...'.
The files are stored in a (platform-dependent) user location and are
kept even when you update Inkscape to a new version.
~/.inkscape/templates (Inkscape 0.46)
~/.config/inkscape/templates (Inkscape 0.46+devel, Inkscape 0.47pre)
