For a start, the use case I had in mind when I originally wrote what is
there now was document conversion. i.e. convert from word to pdf, word to
html, etc.

I have seen a lot of interest in mail merge. I don't what exactly mail merge
is. But I have seen a lot of interest... :-)

We need to post something to the user list and see if we get any feedback.

Argo and Fujaba are the only two free UML tools I know of.  I haven't used
Fujaba but I have found Argo to be very very buggy. One annoying problem is
that the files seem to get corrupted very easily. I am sure nobody cares
what you use as long as it is created with a product that is freely

+1 definitely
