Re: UML interface element suggestion

It would be useful to have a connection point added to the interface

dependency line to the circle part of the lollipop (to show that a
class uses that interface).

At the moment, when you draw in a connection then move the interface
lollipop, you have to re-join the connection.

That would be useful.  Looking at the overall design, I wonder why
'interface' doesn't exist as a separate entity, but only as 'implements'.
Don't people use interfaces without knowing their implementation?  Isn't
that the whole point?  So shouldn't we have an 'interface' object that's
just a circle with name and connection points, and then an 'implements'
