There has been a considerable upgrade on this existing package.  The
new version should make its way to a mirror near you in a day or two.

- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Color, spline, and line width declarations have been simplified, and 
arbitrary-width lines are available. Text may be aligned with a reverse 
LaTeX-style option. Line segments may be specified by points other than 
their endpoints. A bug that affected drawing of arrowheads has been fixed, 
and the code has been cleaned up. Users are strongly encouraged to upgrade, 
since some of the new declarations are not backward-compatible. The package 
includes a script that will bring old input files into compliance with the 
new syntax.
