I do not know. Can sphinx accept svg images and have them render in HTML and
PDF? It would be a nice solution if it did.

On the subject of the commands to be used can we please document the packages
used in the README.txt and teach waf to check for the package and build the
images when given a specific configure command line option? We do not rebuild
the often and rarely replace them but it is important to be able to do this to
make sure the tools we depend on have not changed. We should capture this stuff
and not expect someone who trips over an issue to have to figure out what was
used and how it was used.

So could dot files please be documented and added to waf? :)
