Cause and Effect Diagramming in Mathematica

I am wondering whether Mathematica 6 provides an environment for creating diagrams in which the arrows, nodes and boxes represent data, influences and functional transformations.
  What I'm envisaging is a series of palettes that allow me to add elements to a diagram while at the same time writing the functional relationships to a notebook for later evaluation.
  Does this sound realistic? Can some of you point me to the expressions I should look at to do the following:
  - create a palette that adds a line and a box to a graphic
  - select these two and move them 
  - write the associated functions to a notebook
