As a subscript to all this, it turns out that draw is in the 2.3.0 version, 
but an entry in the kmenu wasn't made.  That you can fix, and I also found a 
sort of a CAD extension for it while I was moseying around on their site.

But these 'extensions' only work with the later versions according to the web 
page on them at OOo.org.
