The Eclipse Modelling Framework is the place to look for real free 
modelling tools these days.  UML is supported the way you say, because 
it has a standard XML format and the diagrams are just ways of 
displaying or editing bits of the model. I'm not sure what modelling 
language you are actually using, or whether it would be supported, but 
nose around the Eclipse-sphere and see what you find.
