Is there any way *not* to embed fonts?

Hi everyone,

Is there any way to get a svg output of a matplotlib, with the fonts not embedded as vector graphic? That is, is there any way to make a figure, such that a vector image editing program (such as Adobe Illustrator) would recognize the text as text and would allow editing of the text, changing the font and resizing the font size?

You can set the rcParam svg.embed_char_paths to False.
