Yes, except that it sounded like the OP hoped that text within the  
graphics could somehow be TeX-ed, so as to blend in with the fonts/ 
typesetting of the overall document. That's a hard problem in the  
general case, as the external tool will have laid out the elements on  
the basis of certain fonts and metrics, and changing them to match  
the fonts *TeX is using could mutilate the illustration.
