But, maybe, the function could be called only once - for the connection

so e.g.:

gboolean can_connect_objects (Object *self, Object *from, Handle
*from_h, Object *to, Handle *to_h)

In principle, one function call is preferable to two or
three :-)  Question: How do I prevent a user from connecting
a simple "line" with a UML class, if only the UML object
"knows" about this access rights?  (Note: I'm relatively new
to the dia internals...)

You don't.  The line would have to call the UML object to ask, and we can't
expect lines to do that.  It seems to me two calls are what we need.
