FS#198 - SVG PG export dimensions

SVG PG exporter, scaled or unscaled, currently only exports the labels of dimensions. Missing are

ticks, arrows, and lines of the dimension.

It will not be as simple as inkscape does it, wrap it all in a <def>.

Dimensions are very finicky. Inkscape offers rudimentary support by adding line style <defs> for the ticks and extensions. This is too little for what QCAD allows, eg. different length extensions, and a full implementation will need quite some conceptual work. Maybe it is contrary to the idea of the PG exporter, but I suggest, that dimensions for the time being should be exploded even in PG export. As they are nicely grouped, one can still apply high level operations in inkscape eg.

Dimensions are now exported as path with the text exported as text.
