I agree, embedded drawing in Wiki pages means you can convey process

I've played around with TWiki Draw and JHotDraw, the open source
software it's based on and don't think you're going to get a
Visio-style drawing out of it.
If you download and look at a *.draw file, you'll notice it's ASCII,
not binary -- this isn't an image format in the traditional sense.
Unless someone in the JHotDraw or TWiki communities
creates a converter, you're not likely to find one anywhere.
