    I just put up a gif of my other tiny XTM editor at

    I left its import as raw. Normally, I would take a few seconds and
    rearrange the nodes to look more like they are supposed to, but what you
    see is the simple layout engine's results. I think you can see that this
    engine will benefit greatly with the addition of TouchGraph.

    About labeled edges, at least in the XTM instance, it does not seem to make
    sense. Edges are just xrefs that link nodes.
