i'm contemplating the idea of a metamodel browser. it should be fairly simple
because all the metamodels use the same objects and relationships. the
browser could simply be a tree view with the hierarchy constructed on the
containment of elements (Model::Namespace::contents) - of course this
wouldn't really show anything useful other than the objects that exist in the

about making a visualization plugin directory where all things GUI related
would go. for example, the metamodel browser is a window containing a tree
view (i suppose it could be dockable). the uml model browser would
essentially be the same thing but based on UML specific relationships.
any thoughts on this? like how to actually build it. i don't have alot (read
ANY) experience with Qt GUI stuff. i suppose i'll figure it out at some
point, but i was wondering if anybody might have some suggestions or
