I think it's not just the rendering. From what I understood, the diagrams are
going to be stored as SVG (the model still needs to be saved as XMI, I
suppose). (Will you get two files then?).
You basically need some library to parse SVG and render that. And it seems
like it would need to be a fullfledged diagram editor, too. I.e. rather half
of karbon than just VPainter.
I guess KSVG is not much into editing right now, while Karbon does not support
as much SVG?

Me and some friends working on their diploma, too!
