Argh, ironically, I have less success than you, and I looked it up (despite 
the name of the page, it does cover inkscape's postscript import/export

It says it uses the external pstoedit or skconvert for import (and I have
neither). But I have renamed tiger.eps (shipped with ghostscript) as tiger.ai
and inkscape is quite happy editing that as an adobe illustrator file (which 
it is), and I can do strange things like rotating the eye brows :-).

According to scribus's doc:

it looks as if scribus also uses pstoedit for import, so the speed
should be similiar if not identical!
