Sorry for the very late reply, I have been finalizing my thesis and
moving back to my country. I would like to restart the discussion
about automatic layout, gearing things towards inclusion into Dia as
an offered feature.

You would prefer it as a plugin (I presume)?


If it is a plugin, where should the GUI code go (if any)?

In the plug-in. I did the necessary changes to your code some time ago, but
that may be lost in some email. I have now added the plug-in to bugzilla.

I forgot to mention that I am going to implement it in Python. That
was why I asked about GUI code. So should I use pygtk?

Any requirements for the GUI (following a certain HIG)?

You may want to read But
please keep in mind that Dia should rely only on GUI available with vanilla
Gtk+ for portability easons.

How can I generate the API docs for plugins? --with-hardbooks didn't work.

There is no dedicated plug-in API documentation. Basically you can use
everything available from lib/* and nothing from app/*

Help > PyDia Docs is all what's there?

Any requirements about memory usage and processing? Or which one
should be prefered over the other?

As mentioned before: I prefer a clean, easy to understand implementation
over any optimization.

Have fun,
