rose makes terrible layouts. there are tools that do significantly better. i 
think argo finally got a layout algorithm that does pretty well.

there was a paper published in softvis this year describing a really nice 
algorithm. i can't remember who wrote it, but it did generate nice pictures.
and in color too.
