Re: Differentiating between Connectors and Objects

For starters, I'll go with the standard elements.

BTW, I have a prototype of the code here (Objective-C):

svn co

and a screencast of it here:

Note: the repelling force of a node is proportional to its size to
avoid overlapping.

PS: Using the algorithms used by "dot" (graphviz) is not really an
option for me, it is my bachelor thesis so the tasks are pretty

It would be lovely to have something like this.

I'd suggest concentrating on the general case (elements and maybe one, maybe
more general lines) instead of trying to handle every last misimplementation
of mutated crossovers that exist in Dia. The problem surely has enough
wrinkles in the base case.
