   Description     : Re-editable LaTeX graphics for Inkscape

TexText is a Python plugin for the vector graphics editor Inkscape
providing the possibility to add and re-edit LaTeX generated SVG
elements to your drawing.

 Key features
 . Windows/Linux/MacOS support
 . LaTeX generated SVG elements can be re-edited later
 . Multi-line editor with syntax highlighting
 . Compilation with PdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX or LuaLaTex
 . Interoperable scaling in TexText and Inkscape
 . Font size match with Inkscape text
 . Customizable TeX preamble (additional packages, parskip, parindent, etc.)
 . Colorization via TeX commands/Inkscape is kept after re-editing
 . Alignment anchor of the produced output
 . Preview images

The packaging [1,2] works (though I haven't tested it in pbuild yet, so there
might be some missing build dependencies).  I'm also confused why py3compile
isn't being added by dh_python3 to the postinst script, so at least one
significant thing needs to be fixed.

Also, this is using upstream's "develop" branch, git commit febf8f7. Earlier
versions don't work with Inkscape 1.0 (beta), which has fully transitioned
to Python 3. There's no reason to waste time packaging things for Python 2,
so I suppose this is targeted at experimental, at least until upstream and
Inkscape make another release.
