I would like to be able to import the structure of a database into Dia.
My first tought was to run 'describe' for the tables I have in my database, and then parse
the output into Dia:s (XML?) format. But since maybe the fileformat might change, this
isn't so good, right?

Has anyone done or wanted something like this before?

The main problem is that we have a couple of databases (in MySQL) that we want to have
nice ER-, or UML-diagrams over. And it's very time-consuming to make them by hand...

Take a look at the Links page on the Dia homepage, there's a number of tools that
generate Dia diagrams from all manner of things.  Particularly
interesting is probably SchemeMania, which
while it's not itself ready to use, has a bunch more links and ideas for
similar projects.
