One thing worth noting here is that @Diag &co are completely
*external* to core Lout, as @Eq is as well, BTW.

What I like about @Diag is the ability to describe diagrams at high
level.  I also admire @Diag as one of the greatest Lout hacks.  I also
do use external programs to draw diagrams when that's easier for me in
that particular case.

Things worth noting here are: (1) no one is forced to use @Diag; (2)
@Diag doesn't "taint" the core Lout; (3) @IncludeGraphic is there.  So
everyone can just use whatever suits his need and because of (2)
there's no need to worry that @Diag exists. ;-)
