Has anyone tried using a dedicated vector editing tool like Adobe

I'd like to be able to export an Illustrator file to SVG and use that for
the shape file in Dia. I know I would at least have to wrap the svg
directives in the <shape> tags. Does anybody know if this is possible?

The better way (though more programming-intensive at first) would be to
make an SVG importer for Dia.  If you like, take a look at the XFig
importer and copy structure from there.  It may seem roundabout, but a)
it allows us to import *any* SVG file, and b) we can use Dia in conversion
mode to make the shapes.
