Hi folks,

Please see the attached patch that allows for post-processing of
PlantUML diagrams based on the exported file extension.  I currently use
this to transform text in PlantUML SVGs to paths with Inkscape so that
they can be embedded in PDFs with the text displaying at the correct
size in the image.  Since this post-processing occurs as part of the
export process it works perfectly with Babel's caching.  This ends up
saving me a bunch of time when making changes to only one of a
half-dozen figures.  The concept could also work as post-execute advice
on `org-babel-execute:plantuml', but I thought it would be more
accessible to users as a new customizable variable built into
`ob-plantuml.el'.

The only part I'm unsure about is that I use "%s" as the replacement
character when running commands over the exported file.  For example, my
"use Inkscape to pathify SVG text" command looks like:

    inkscape %s -T -l %s

I'm uncertain whether that's a non-recommended replacement character
but, either way, it functions well enough.

Please let me know if the patch is attached incorrectly: I tried
git-send-email but think I screwed it up somewhere as the previous
emails never appeared on the list.

Thanks for your time,
Nick

Subject: [PATCH] ob-plantuml: Add PlantUML block post-processing.

* lisp/ob-plantuml.el (org-babel-plantuml-post-process): New function.
After `org-babel-execute:plantuml' finishes exporting a file, read
the file's extension and synchronously performs commands associated
with that extension, in order, as defined in
`org-babel-plantuml-post-export-commands'.  If a command contains
"%s", that token is replaced with the output file's name.  If a
command errors, it is skipped and execution continues with subsequent
commands.

(org-babel-execute:plantuml): Use new function.

If the above patch was too generic and heavy-weight for consideration,
please see this alternative, simpler, patch.  It just adds a flag that,
when enabled, runs for SVG images exported via PlantUML.

The motivation behind these patches should be fairly clear from the
attached image below demonstrating the unreadability of SVG-text images
when embedded in PDFs as viewed in one of my local PDFs produced with
OrgMode when viewed through Evince on Debian Stable.  Fortunately,
Inkscape is kind enough to keep the original text in the SVG, so the
images should be mostly human-readable after the conversion.

Thanks for your time,
Nick

Subject: [PATCH] Add PlantUML SVG to Path.

* lisp/ob-plantuml.el (org-babel-execute:plantuml): Add SVG-specific
post-export step that, when enabled, runs inkscape text-to-path
replacement over the output file.  Enabled with new custom variable
