Ipe assumes that once it has created a text object, it can be scaled
and stretched freely.  PK fonts break that assumption.

Also, PDF viewers display PK fonts so poorly that I consider it a
misconfiguration when PK fonts are included the output of my personal
pdflatex setup.

Could you explain why you would want this?

See Chapter 11 in the manual.
