I have used Dia a bit and found it quite clunky and difficult to use. The
graphics in the files aren't spectacular either. I haven't used Openoffice
Draw before but seeing was we include much of OO.o anyway, I don't think it
would really make too much sense to replace it with something that is
(apparently, again I have not used OO Draw) not much better.

Are there any other suggestions for a replacement app? Dia seems to really
be the other go-to app for diagramming, but it doesn't really feel
"professional" or sleek enough to include in the default install.
