Hyperref will create links during the latex run, destroying the 
linearity of the pdf form.

The simple answer is: don't use hyperref, or anything else that's 
supposed to create PDF hyperlinks.

Ipe has no support for links.  If such support is ever added (I'm 
certainly not planning it anytime soon), it would certainly not be 
through a Latex package.  PDF links are stored as annotations, outside 
the pages graphics contents, and quite hard to parse from the pdflatex
