in reply to RDBMS 'Pretty' Schema

The closest finished script to what you asked for is PostgreSQL AutoDoc. I've used it for a Green Party database over here PNG (300K with color), Dia (10K, editable). The key here is you'll have to move everything all around so it fits nice. Incidentally - if anyone here wants to comment on the linked diagram then you're very welcome.

    Is it just me, or is there something wrong with how the "orgpeoplemembership" box was drawn? Apart from that, it seems to work nicely -- it's awfully big, but then so is the schema... (I guess I would have preferred a different way to draw the lines and arrow symbols for the foreign-key dependencies -- having the lines look more like those in the OP's image, extending horizontally from each box where the field in question in printed -- but that's just a nit-pick.)
