Subsequently found that Inkscape cannot open the EPS files exported by 
Fontographer 4.7 . . bu**er!

Fontlab Studio can, similarly, export EPS files; but as Inkscape doesn't 
'DO' EPS files that's not much cop.

Of course RunRev 2.2.1 has an import EPS facility, which is, 
mysteriously enough, inaccessible.
