Circles are not exported when saving in DXF file format

Bug Description

Since release 0.91, circles are no more exported via the python script in DXF.

By comparing the same SVG content in 0.48 and 0.91, it looks like that the circle path definition is no more stored in the SVG file since 0.91.

It could explain why the python script is no more able to export circles.

Reproduced with Inkscape 0.91 r13725 and 0.91+devel r14325 on OS X 10.7.5.

Would be nice to have support for native <circle> and <ellipse> SVG shapes (new in >= 0.91) - for now, a workaround exists (convert to path before exporting to DXF).

attached is a proposed fix for this bug. This implements support for circle and ellipse elements, which had previously been represented as paths. This code can be tested by copying the file to the Inkscape\share\extensions\ directory. In Inkscape 0.91 you will also need to copy the new version of the dxf_outlines.inx file from the repository:

If testing under Inkscape 0.91 you may detect a slight scaling change due to the fact that the new code uses a default 96 dpi for scale conversions while Inkscape 0.91 uses a default 90 dpi.

Thank you for the fix.

Note that the dxf_outlines.inx file is identical to the 0.91 one (About that, I don't really understand the relation between the actual dxf_outlines.inx content and the py file: pstoedit ? ?)
