Calligrams with Inkscape

Today I was looking for a quick way to create a calligram. I tried to do it with the GIMP, but it was not that easy, so I looked for another alternative, and I found Inkscape. I had never used it before, but it looks very powerful for vector graphics. As for the calligram, it is very easy to make both things that I was looking for, as illustrated below: make text to follow a path (which can be obtained from a picture, as the example below) or to flow inside a given shape (the guitar svg file can be found here).
