I personally love Dia and use it quite a bit when I need to make
diagrams and architecture workflows. I don't require insane amounts of
functionality though, and haven't tried the Python scripting other than
looking at a few examples.
If you can get anything else GTK or Gnome based to run on OS X with Fink
or whatever is the hip OSS build chain for OS X these days, I'm guessing
Dia shouldn't be a problem.
