There'll be an install script in the next version.

Actually, until I've fixed some more bugs and added often-requested
features, I don't think I could cope with more users :-)

Yes, this can be done.  Basically, you have

<template name="logo">
... an ipe object (can be a group) ...

in your style sheet, and you refer to it as 

<ref name="logo">

in your document.  The user interface has absolutely no support for
this yet, so it's not yet possible to seriously work with this feature
yet (and for that reason it's also very little tested).

In some future version...


ps. The good news is that I'm going to make slides for my upcoming
course in Ipe, so I'll need to work on it again :-)
