Hi Steve,

it's funny you mention this... because I was just thinking about this yesterday.

If we could make some symbols (Open Symbols) that could be pieces of diagrams.

It might be possible. What kind of diagrams are you talking about though?

Coincidentally, or perhaps not, today while I was messing around with a
connector in a drawing in Inkscape, my user interface started going so
slow I thought it wasn't responding. At the time, I chalked it up to
the fact that I was XML-editing the connector in ways it probably
shouldn't have been, as well as snaking it between "connector-avoid"

But after your mentioning that connectors make things go slow, perhaps
my experience was an example of what you're saying.

I've been using dia for block diagrams. Perhaps if Inkscape connectors
get a little faster I'll block diagram in Inkscape.
