There's a very close relationship between matrices and graphs... so much
so that whatever interface boost settles on for matrices will probably
have an almost 1-1 correspondance with the BGL interface... in the past
I've created graph adaptors for MTL matrices, and matrix adaptors for BGL
graphs. That way you can view the same data as either a graph or a matrix,
depending on the need of the moment.
