Will do. Thanks.

I tried that. dia doesn't have an export plugin to pdf format. When I
export to Encapsulated Postscript (.eps), it doesn't offer an option to size
the output, so I end up with essentially the existing architecture.eps
already in the repository, and when I resize that with ImageMagick, it gets
fuzzy. I also tried exporting to png, which does offer an output size, but
after conversion to pdf I get a "page" with the image in the lower left
corner. I figured maybe I could size the figure in dia, then export, but I
could not find any way to size the diagram in dia. I also tried export to
svg, but when I load the resulting file into karbon or konqueror, the fonts
are just black squares. I also tried to use scribus with no luck. Sorry to
be a pain. The image I committed isn't bad, but it can be better. :/ I'm
hoping some good samaritan will take a shot at it. There's gotta be a way.
Afterall dia is a vector based image, so it should be possible to get a
crystal-clear image. Needs to be pdf of a image about 450x155 pixels if
anyone wants to give it a go.
