I learned about Gravit on LQ and I think I found the perfect Inkscape replacement with it.

Wish there were some more lightweight options in this category. svg-edit looked interesting. For vector graphics editing (currently no SVG support) figurine looked somewhat lightweight and still useful. Should be possible to add SVG support to some of the older vector graphics editors that support other formats.

xfig's also an interesting alternative. Wish there were more conversion programs (especially command line) to convert xfig's format to SVG, WPG, etc.

Been an occasional user of inkscape for a dozen years or so. Great tool, but can be a bit slow at times

By the way, it appears that transfig comes with the fig2dev cli program that will convert xfig's files to (among other formats, raster and vector) emf, pdf, eps, and svg(beta) using vector graphics.

I usually export to eps or pdf+tex for use in LaTeX.
