Generated BPMN diagram information

in our usage of activiti, we are generating BPMN without any kind of diagramming information.
For the engine that is fine, and works. Nonetheless we might make use of some kind of graphical visualization.
When opening the BPMN in the Eclipse designer, a default diagram (somehow crude but effective) is generated. If the BPMN is opened and saved in the designer, such information remains, while instead, when just deploying it into a running activiti engine, no layout information is added.

We tried to add some layout information but the problem of laying out graphs is not of easy solution. As soon as the Eclipse Designer has some code to handle this, would it be possible isolate the layouting algorithm and reuse that piece of code?
