Well, I'm still not an ace Violet user, but I've taken a cut at putting my 
proposed changes into a modification of Dave's original.  The links are:

My proposed diagram as .png is at [1].
The same thing in Violet source is at [2].
Dave's original, which I used as a base, is at [3,4]

You'll note that this version is slightly "improved" over the original 
.png that I circulated last week (mostly a few labels added to 
connectors.)

BTW: Is it normal for violet to take something like a second or two to 
respond to simple mouse gestures even on a honker Core Duo 2 GHz laptop? 
It did work, but it felt like an old timesharing system with too many 
users.

Ew... the tool is just one jar file, one click from the project 
homepage...

And Dave did check in the violet source of his diagram.

Would you please give it a try?
