What does simulink do that you miss?  Is it the gui?

For what it's worth, electrical engineers used to design using schematics.  
Now design is described in text.  There's a reason for this.  Schematics are 
only useful for simple designs.  Once they become more complex, it's much 
more efficient to work with text.  Not to mention the ability to manipulate 
text, and the ability to transfer text-based designs between systems.
