participating in talks with the ODF format?
Reason I ask is as follows. Dia's format is almost perfectly
understandable as is. I can go in and read the XML (after gunziping it
of course) and understand the position size and other attributes with
little to no understanding of dia. Also I love the indentions in the
format it makes it easy following objects. I would love for the ODF to
contain some of these wonderful features employed in the dia program.
Also I would like full compatibility with dia diagrams between apps
such as dia and openoffice and the like :-)

I took a look at ODF a while back, and decided I didn't want to try to
import/export it at that point.  I'm glad you like the Dia format, but
it ought the be just a question of the right XSLT to translate between
them.  The indentation is just from libxml2's prettyprint function.
