Add support of dia image files


Author: osgxdvyg


There is a rather good open source vector image editor DIA. It can be used to create some diagramms to computer-related atricles. This format is easily convertable to .svg, but after the conversion it can't be easily edited (in dia, for example there can be a linked objects like in visio, when you move one object, linked arrows will move too. after conversion to svg this feature is lost).

Please, allow users to upload images in .dia format.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Extension:Dia seems a plausible solution for this, if and when the extension is reviewed and deployed on commons.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
