I see it like this: user clicks "insert graphviz" and pane appears (like in 
math mode), user types in graphviz _code_, clicks OK and the graph is inserted 
into document. 
 But then... it would be a good point to provide more general tool. At basic 
level OOW should just know that some stuff from external tools is inserted, 
nothing more, so the general dialog would like this: 
 register as: ............... 
 program to run: ............ 
 arguments: ................. 
 In arguments user should be able to use variables like $IN, $OUT (input 
filename, output filename). 
 This was tool template, so user, or OO team could prepare some templates 
for...! :-) 
 a) inserting latex formulas 
 b) inserting graphviz graphs 
 c) and so on 
 Then having a tool template, you could just call it and you get the dialog I 
described at the beginning. But the advantage is OOW know nothing is it 
formula, or graph, or image, who cares -- it is just data from some external
