Free raster-to-vector conversion program found

We used to have an entry in the tasklist that said "A program to scan a line drawing and convert it to editable Postscript, or some other editable format."  The term of art in the CAD world for this type of software is "Raster to Vector conversion."  There's a GPL program called AutoTrace http://autotrace.sourceforge.net/ which looks quite functional so if you need software for this purpose please use AutoTrace in preference to any proprietary alternative.
