Richard Sachs hosts an on-line lug reference library, where I found these images of lugs I designed for the last really nice Allez built by Specialized in the early 90's. This was a ground up design, which included a fork crown, dropouts and a bottom bracket shell (later copied by Cinelli) all developed around a very refined lightweight tube set that used a proprietary 30mm downtube and chainstay profile. The lugs, BB & tube set were resurrected to build the red bike for the Oregon Manifest, although on that bike, the lugs were highly modified, removing the direct fit sockets and filing them extensively.
Check out Richard's site for a historical look at the kind of choice we once had in lugs:
