Which of the infinite set of possible instantiations of, e.g. the BGL
adjacency_list<> template would you expose through your binding? The BGL is
so heavily templated that a library preserving the same configurability
would be full of Python callbacks, which would doubtless kill any speed
advantage to be had by crossing the language boundary. My suggestion, if you
want the same facility in Python, is to do a wholesale translation of the
BGL into Python. You'd be surprised at how many of the generic idioms map
