....the following with the M3 build of UML2Tools:

a) name & language of a constraint.

I can show a the definition of a constraint with the menu action:
"Create Shortcut..." but I don't see:
- the language used for specifying the constraint (e.g., OCL, Java, ...)
- the name of the constraint. Sometimes, fully-qualified names are too
long. It would be nice to show:

- the fully-qualified name in reverse order, or
- 1,2,..N levels of name qualification, enough to tell which element on
the diagram the constraint belongs, or
- a line between the element that owns the constraint and the shortcut
to the constraint

b) generalizations/associations across packages

Suppose I have:
- package P1 with class A
- package P2 with class B
- P2::B has a generalization relationship to P1::A

If I initialize a diagram for P2, the diagram automatically shows *all*
of the contents of P2. For small packages, this is OK but it is
definitely too much clutter for large packages.

I can create a shortcut to P1::A in the P2 class diagram.
However, I can't create either a shortcut or show the existing
generalization relationship from P2::B to P1::A

The same comment applies to other kinds of relationships such as
associations.
