Omnigraffle is great as a picture creation tool ... can it also export a 
file into a .tex format? There used to be an old Mac program called 
LaGrafix that did this - it used the picture environment (but was buggy, 
and had nowhere near the feature set that Omnigraffle does).

Are there any other wysywg tools for using various LaTeX drawing 
environments such as xypic, picture etc?
