--Just in case there are others, and for those who may have missed some of the tools that do exist--

Are there any useful tools to help visualize a ROS computation graph? (Or to generate nice pictures for papers based on these graphs?)

I've seen that people use rxgraph, but often don't realize they can also use xdot to generate images from a saved .dot file.

roslaunch somepkg somefilename.launch
rxgraph -o
rosrun xdot

(And you can edit in realtime which I think is a useful way to generate figures that fit the needs of a paper or a presentation.)
