OmniGraffle uses graphviz internally, and reads .dot files without any
intermediate conversion.

For the doorbells to mammals poster, (dc 2008, berlin) I created the BT
closure graph in code, then fine tuned the layout and add notes, etc using
OG.

There are some crufty hacks you can do to the generated dot to get things to
align better; there are also new options that aren't covered in the pdf
documents, so reading the html pages is critical.

Also, some of the layout code is cubic or worse, so don't try and layout the
entire lcsh in one graph to see how many pages it would take :-)
