I ran pg_autodoc against the SL schema last week, (into Dia) and tried
to attach a .png of a subject area here. It failed as the .png was too
big, and reducing it sufficiently (<40k) resulted in nothing viewable.

Anyway ... I occurs to me that now that LSMB 1.1.0 is out, is the ledger
SMB schema reasonably stable that it is worth doing any of:

 - Reverse the current schema into .dia
 - Produce subject area .dias as configuration items and put them under
subversion control.
 - Start a Version 2 subversion fork based on a rebuild of a more robust
schema, whatever that will be. (Scope and define functionality for this)
 - Continue the version 1 system as at present, based essentially on the
current schema.
 - Plan for incremental migration of the current system through
increment releases, and probably at some stage a relatively big one, to
Version 2.

This should give everyone a picture of where the project is going, and
how everyone is going to get there.

(Be prepared for a lot of discussion re version 2 before a lot of
artifacts are produced. However the results of discussions themselves
become key artifacts, eg a Scope of System, Requirements Spec, Data
Model etc... The list of artifacts is itself an artifact.)
