I can suggest two options.
First, Extensions > Arrange > Restack can be used to re-order your vectors in (for example) a top-to-bottom order, which can help somewhat.
Second, there is an extension included as part of the EggBot project that can re-order vectors to minimize pen-up time. We’ve been thinking about adding it for AxiDraw as well ( https://github.com/evil-mad/axidraw/issues/4 ).
In the mean time, you can install the EggBot software for Inkscape (see http://wiki.evilmadscientist.com/Installing_software ), which will give you that extension.
