my code is what's in CVS... the only thing i haven't done is distribute a 
generic configuration file and that's because configuration stuff is probably 
going to change soon. in order to enable all the plugins do the following

$ make
$ su
# make install
# vi $KDEDIR/share/config/umbrello2rc

copy the following lines into that file
[Startup Actions]

# exit
$ umbrello2

that should work

the view menu is created by the Umbrello::Gui class. the MetamodelTree::Plugin 
class makes a request to Umbrello::Gui::viewMenu() in order to add the 
Metamodel popup menu. because the Umbrello::Gui::viewMenu does not exist it 
is created so the plugin can add to it.

yeah... i know. i need to give it some thought. alot of the UI is going to 
revolve around research that i'm doing this week, but i'll give the general 
direction in a new email that i'm going to post right after this.
