We’ve used a similar hardcoded python trick to get Inkscape extensions (in general) to run under some recent versions of Mac OS, each release of which seems to temporarily break Inkscape extensions.
We’re located in Sunnyvale, CA, so not very close to DC. ;)
On my install attempt, I was unable to boot from the so-called “install CD,” but not able to get a network connection, which is needed to finish it. Tried following several guides for installing, but no joy so far.
I’m not able to commit a lot of time to that part (installing gentoo) of the project right now. Do you know if there any compiled/”binary” version of Inkscape available that you could test?
