Hi John, Herm implemented this feature last year during his GSOC
project. When he build up the functionality to render LateX code inside
of Scribus, I had the idea that this can also be useful for other
programs. So, fact is, that with this feature every commandline program
which takes some code as input and produces images as output, can be
used here.

And yes, it is "GraphViz" and not "GraphWiz".
