    I looked at Cayenne Modeler when I started EM ... It's REALLLLY close
    to EOModels, but not quite, and I just decided that I could make a
    much better app that really knows EOF than to try and shoehorn another
    ORM model into a different editor. However, it it works for you,
    that's great!
