I used to combine skencil and psfrag and I am not able to do this with sK1.
It would be nice to have the option to save text as text when
exporting to eps (or perhaps it is possible and I am missing something)

sK1 font system is fully rewritten and highly different from Skencil font routines. We have used ttf/otf font vs PS1 like in Skencil. So storing text as a real text in PS|PDF formats requires ttf/otf converting on the fly. Also Skencil supports latin-1 encoding only whereas sK1 uses raw Unicode. This feature is also not trivial for PS|PDF formats. Therefore on current development stage we export text into PS|PDF as Bezier curves.
The primary application task is a correct printing output but not reusable PS|PDF files. Of course in future we will provide advanced text support. But this feature requires special release.

Thus, It seems it might take a while until a sk1 release
comes out with support for true text in eps.
I was thinking of porting say the sketchlatex plugin to sk1.
I have no prior experience with the plugin system
of sk1 (or even skencil). So I when ahead and looked
at the plugins that come with sk1.
There is the regular polygon plugin that used to come with
skencil in the sk1 installation but it I cant find it while using sk1.
Also there is a fairly good documentation for writing plugins
in skencil. How much of this docs can be used for writing
