I'm busy with diagrams generated by GraphViz (example diagram presented
in the attachments).
There are several issues, which makes me crazy:
- all connectors are "just lines" by default, they haven't any
connection with boxes
- arrows on the connectors are objects which don't follow connectors
(they are polygons, not properties of the path)
- it is impossible to make connection between "internal" boxes

I've got some ideas about new features:
- auto-create connectors when importing svg (or on request via menu)
- replace arrowheads objects with styles (automatically as well)
- selecting "internal" boxes for connection as well as "big" boxes
- allow to disable autorouting, only connected (first or last) point is
modified

I've read, that "smooth" connectors are planned.

Additionally.. When editing path (by repositioning points, etc),
removing points is very annoying. If point were removed by double click
it would be very nice :)

I'm not sure if the SVG generated by graphviz is part of the problem,
but the native SVG can be changed by modifying the driver in
graphviz/plugin/core/gvrender_core_svg.c

It is printf based.
