We tested latest v.in.dxf (CVS 2006.04.05). A few notes:
- dxf R14 and 2000 are correctly imported
- we found problems with R12, but it may be a local problem (possibly a 
corrupted file)
- by default, all layers are imported at once, but it is possible to choose 
which ones
- qgis can open the vector; what is unconvenient, however, is that each layer 
has to be opened by hand (68 layers in our case!)
- TclTk GUI cannot visualize them (?)
So far so good.
What would be useful now would be a way of consistently giving the same 
characteristics (visibility, colour, thickness, etc.) to the same layers 
across multiple maps, and loading them at once. Without this it is very 
time-consuming to use it in real applications.
Overall, great results! Now CAD is no longer a far away world.
