Okay, will use it. Is in_edges() required for all exising isomorphism
algorithms (just curious)?

A, that would be quite easy. See attachment for my first try.

In fact, if I read SGI STL docs right, there are almost no requirements it
can fulfill.

I've made an attempt do so. Half successfull. The problem is that I think
this specialized map should support both const and non-const subscript, which
doesn't agrees with lvalue property map requirements, it seems.
