If you're on Linux or Mac, I think this should already be working for Corel
Draw files better than v.7. You do need to have a helper program called
uniconvertor installed, however. Linux should be able to do this through a
package manager (apt, synaptic, yum), don't know about Mac (MacPorts??).
If you're on Windows, there is a patch that's just about ready added to the
dev builds to fix this. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/197617
At the moment, Windows users will have to patch the development code, but
it's not really that hard. Give it a go and see, you can't break anything.
See http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Win32Port for a guide that
should get you well on the way.
If you're not certain about patching and building, I couldn't do any of this
just under two months ago, but I followed the instructions on that wiki page
and then improved them a little, and asked questions on the developer
mailing list (sister list to this). Pretty soon I was able to help test a
whole lot of things for the 0.46 release. I'm sure there are lots more
potential testers (developers?) out there. It just takes a little patience
to get over the first hurdle, and then it gets addictive.
Another option altogether is to get into http://www.openclipart.org, which has
stacks of strings free clipart. Or there is also clker.com, which uses the
openclipart images, but has an alternate interface that's easier to browse.
