Sounds an awful lot like Steve Smith's GDE (okay, okay -- so you
are "stuck using X-Windows"). -- available as always from
golgi.harvard.edu in the pub/GDE directory for the grand sum of $0.00.
Also, while some of your diagram isn't in GDE, GDE is fully user-extensible
so you are free to add whatever is missing.
