BTW, although I'm academically interested in this, I think a gui block-
diagram approach is only useful for students/toy projects.

I'm an old electrical engineer.  Back in the day, we used to draw schematics 
(by hand).  Today, we use hardware description languages.  There's reasons 
why using pictures to describe designs has been replaced by text:

* pictures work well only for low complexity.  For complex designs, 
productivity becomes unacceptably low
* What you see is all you got - text is easy to integrate with any kind of 
tool.
