This is an RFE.

Currently new tables are added to query graph in a straight line, which results
in some lines covering others.  The simplest way around this is to modify the
layout algorithm to use two dimensions.  Even better (but probably not worth it)
is intelligent layout to minimize line length and crossings.

Partially fixed by placing the internal frames at random locations instead of
linearly. There will be a better layout algorithm whn we switch to the next
version of JGraph after reef.
