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.
Why would you want to do this? As mentioned before it definitely is no requirement to get your code to be included with Dia.

That was why I asked about GUI code. So should I use pygtk?

If you would go with Python, yes.

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?

Almost, but see also:
