I dont recall all the reason, but diagramming tool was decided on months
ago. :)  So it will remain DIA as far as GNU Enterprise is concerned.

I believe the big factor was "keeping it in the GNU family".  Also, I
belive the other tools were still barely usable and/or written in Java.
Dia is not perfect, but it will work for what we need for now.
