Hi all,

In order to make it easier for developers to understand better cloudstack
and its code, I think sometimes an UML diagram could help a lot. IMO much
more than comments and headers most times. My favorite tool for UML is
PlantUML mainly because it's plain text that can be viewed with a Plant
plugin (or any other PlantUML flavour). So if a diagram gets obsolete it's
easy and fast to update the PlantUML file, commit it and everybody will see
the diagram updated. that way we don't commit images or strange formats,
just text. And if considered necessary any of these diagrams can also be
exported (for example with the same PlantUML eclipse plugin).

If you guys agree, I would then proceed and commit my first PlantUML files.
By the way, in such case I would also like confirmation o where to place
them for each module.

Thanks and cheers
Antonio Fornie
