We tried to use only open-source software to create the book,
i.e., LaTeX2e ... I created some 70+ illustration, and Dia
was the only open-source program adequate for this task.

I also use Dia roughly this way for its good PostScript
support, so I'd also like to see it continue to evolve more
general drawing support.

Anyway, perhaps IPE <URL:> would
sometimes be useful to you.  I have heard good things
about it.
I just tried IPE. It does'nt look bad. However it has
limited arrow support and no editable bezier curves.
