Outline to graphviz

Here's a script that converts a tab-delimited outline into a high quality graphviz diagram (generating dotscript and runningthe Graphviz tools under the hood).
Thus, this...
The image [base
...becomes this:

The image [base

This lets me easily create and view outlines and diagrams from within my python development environment. Now, if I had lightweight code-folding python editor with a one-keystroke run function for the mac I'd be totally satisfied ;->

This doesn't replace the entire dotscript language yet. In particular, I'd like to have records (nested boxes) follow the same implicit tab-delimited syntax. But I keep getting befuddled. I'd welcome help.
