Hi,
that's right, yeah. It would be a nice way to do association classes,
but I guess we have to work on GEF to get this working. GEF is the Graph
Editing Framework, now standalone, but it was developed with Argo, and
it just fits the requirements for Argo now. We have some points where it
is not mighty enough for what we want already, like own Figs for each
Operation or Attribute...

We need a way to freely position PathElements on FigEdges, like FigTexts
as inscriptions bbut also linkPoints where an Edge is connected to
another (in Argo for assoc. classes or XOR). This information must be
kept with the Edge so it remembers. Any more ideas of "real" GEF
hackers?
