Bug Description

Follow-up report to Bug #656899 “DXF import/export empty”

It seems that DXF export fails to support the rectangle shapes because Inkscape doesn't add the (redundant) 'd' path attribute like it does for the other parametrized shapes - the 'd' attribute is not needed because Inkscape uses the basic SVG shape for rectangles [1]. DXF export should not require rectangles to be converted to paths before export and instead directly parse the <rect> object.

Inkscape rectangle:

       y="20" />

Example from the SVG spec:

  <rect x="400" y="100" width="400" height="200"
        fill="yellow" stroke="navy" stroke-width="10" />

attached is a modified version of the file dxf_outlines.py, which will support the <rect> element.

Tested and confirmed with Inkscape 0.48+devel r9966 + the attached 'dxf_outlines.py' and QCad v2.0.5.0 (Community Edition), as well as reimported the DXF files into Inkscape.

Transformed (rotated, skewed) rectangles seem exported correctly.

Thx, Alvin :)
