Since the d-i RC2 seems to come nearer, see
would it be possible to apply the patch and upload inkscpe with this
"small" change also into lenny asap? In some sense "push" at least this
functionality back again?

Can I help on this? (Cc'ing Charles Plessy which did a part of the NMU
for 0.46-2.lenny1). 

I'm not a Debian Developer nor a Debian Maintainer yet, so I think I
cannot myself propose a NMU. (and then a unblock request to the
release managers).

If you agree, I would prepare a package inkscape_0.46-2.lenny2
applying the 05_fix_latex_patch.dpatch, and if you agree also one for
unstable (0.46-3.1) as NMU.

Kind regards
