Currently Inkscape uses cairo_show_glyphs() to render text to PS/PDF. This is suboptimal. By using any of the two APIs listed in Summary will result in better text extraction from the resulting PS/PDF.

Those two APIs are newer than cairo_show_glyphs() though. And the code needs some change to push the text down to the drawing layer as well as the glyphs.
