I see that it's rather big. I suspect that the importer, while it gets
scaling right, doesn't get the units right. The importer is
plug-ins/dxf/dxf-import.c, and should be easy to understand. There's an
overview of the file format at
http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/mxr/gfx/3d/DXF12.spec. I don't have time to
get into it now, if you could figure this out, it'd be great.
