The version in KDE's CVS (kdesdk module) can export to EPS and a variety
of other image formats.

I'm not sure if a command line image export fuction would be a good idea
or not, how would you specify which diagram to export (Umbrello files
contain more than one diagram unlike Dia).  Possibly dcop could be used.
Add it to bugs.kde.org as a wishlist if you want.

Requests like this should be directed to the mailing list at
umbrello-devel at kde.org rather than directly to me.
