Hmm - I seem to have a problem with my setup - it won't let me see it.

I like it!

I've had similar troubles in the past.

I'll see if I can dig around with graphviz on my machine and come up
with something.

Agreed.

The thought that comes first to me is this would be an excellent option
to have if/when we start including these types of diagrams in pamphlet
files - hyperlinked pdf for pdf, image map png for html. But I think
that's a bit down the road at present.
