I've attached two files, cutvinyl.inx and cutvinyl.py, which when
placed in the ~/.inkscape/extensions directory at an Output menu to the
Effects menu, which has one item, Cut Vinyl.
I ran into what I believe to be a bug:
inkscape --without-gui --export-ps=del.ps del.svg
as a script command does not create postscript output, so the new menu
item doesn't actually work for me, although it might work for you as I'm
sure --export-ps has worked in the past.
Anyway, all the script does at present is save the document to a
temporary .svg file, attempt (this is the bit that fails) to invoke a
second instance of inkscape to convert it to PS, and then views it with
the PS viewer 'gv'.
I suspect that you'll be able to follow the pattern to add the behavior
you want, but if not let me know and I'll flesh it out a bit more.
