    Probably not exactly what you're looking for, but something you might find useful is the DrawIt plugin for vim. You can enter a drawing "mode" and can easily draw lines, arrows, boxes, etc. using either ASCII characters or Unicode line segments. This isn't a replacement for a full UML diagram, but can be handy for things like state diagrams or truth tables in comments.
