Please generate nodes name in svg file or a more verbose debug

I need to get positions of elements in output file.

Is there a possibility that verbose mode will write positions (x,y) of elements while processing?

Or, like dot(graphviz) include comment to SVG file, like:

        subgraph cluster_ha101_0 {
                node [shape=component,style=filled,fillcolor="#FFFCB2",color="red",nodesep=0.1,ranksep=0.1]
                label=ha101
                ha101_nginx [label=nginx]
                ha101_haproxy [label=haproxy]
                ha101_ssh [label=ssh]
                ha101_cron [label=cron]

                ha101_nginx -> ha101_haproxy

will generate:

<g id="clust1" class="cluster"><title>cluster_ha101_0</title>
<polygon fill="none" stroke="black" points="796.659,-238 796.659,-428 1132.66,-428 1132.66,-238 796.659,-238"/>
<text text-anchor="middle" x="964.659" y="-412.8" font-family="Times,serif" font-size="14.00">ha101</text>
</g>

</g>
<!-- ha101_nginx&#45;&gt;ha101_haproxy -->
<g id="edge1" class="edge"><title>ha101_nginx&#45;&gt;ha101_haproxy</title>
<path fill="none" stroke="black" d="M1097.05,-360.838C1096.41,-342.669 1095.38,-313.725 1094.63,-292.394"/>
<polygon fill="black" stroke="black" points="1098.12,-292.194 1094.27,-282.324 1091.13,-292.441 1098.12,-292.194"/>
</g>

and i can get element position from SVG, but PlantUML don't put comments to SVG.


Example of my diagrams:

  @startuml
  actor user
  actor admin

  cloud "floating ip" {
          interface HTTPS as ha_https
  }

  node "ha101" {
          component haproxy as ha101_haproxy
          component ssh as ha101_ssh
          component nginx as ha101_nginx

          ha101_nginx --> ha101_haproxy
          ha_https --> ha101_nginx
  }

  node "app101" {
          component app_app as app101_app
  }

  node "app102" {
          component app_app as app102_app
  }

  node "app103" {
          component app_app as app103_app
  }

  node "db101" {
          database postgresql as db101_postgresql
  }

  app101_app --> db101_postgresql
  app102_app --> db101_postgresql
  app103_app --> db101_postgresql
  user --> ha_https
  ha101_haproxy --> app101_app
  ha101_haproxy --> app102_app
  ha101_haproxy --> app103_app
  admin --> ha101_ssh

  @enduml

and any appearance of app101_app is in <text> field and not in comment to whole polygon of that component.

I want to automate generation uml files from my shinken inventory, then generate SVG file and set it as background in nagvis, then analyze SVG file for positions of elements, and put host and services statuses on map in nagvis.
Full automatic monitoring :)

We've build a first (and minimal) version, where a comment is printed for classes (only to SVG).
You can get it here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

For example:

@startuml
class Foo
class Bar
Foo --> Bar
