None, actually. It would be interesting to hear from someone who's 
actually tried it. :)

The most ambitious story around FMC is The Apache Modelling Project


as far as I know.

Last time I looked at it, the state of FMC-capable editors was a bit
troubling. MS Visio supposedly supports FMC notation, as well as 
OpenOffice. Oryx is an Open Source project and an online editor,
but it failed to convert me, at least.
