Yes. I'll update svn for embedded db2latex then.

Ok, that would be good. Ideally we need following to do:
1. Migrate to dblatex from db2latex
2. Convert all type setting we currently have using dblatex's setup options
3. [Optional] Migrate dia diagrams to svg (separate task, dia is
emitting a lot of internal errors during translation to eps and seems
doing so for long time). I'd prefer to use Inkscape to maintain diagrams
in SVG format.
