I wasn't trying to disparage the graphical tools.  They certainly have
value.  For the schema I work on, though, you'd need 2 30" monitors
(and I only have a 17") to hold just a fraction of the schema in a
graphical representation, so it doesn't work too well for me.  Even
when printed out from within another tool using large plotter paper,
it is hard to find things (I don't grep on paper very well).  Speaking
of grep, I wonder if I ever opened that ticket to add a find function
in the me that would be useful (and much easier to add).
