Thanks to some help from rayc and miloh, I was able to successfully 
engrave a few things on linen. My first attempt was at 5.5 mA or so, but 
Miloh pointed out just how weak the fibers had become. Further attempts 
were at ~4.5 mA, 70% speed, 1 pass (raster). These seemed to be pretty 
strong. Lesson learned: make sure you strength test in *both* 
directions. The weft was basically undamaged, but the warp was very, 
very weak.

One of these is now in the kitchen, having joined the noisebridge towelpool.
