Yes, I think it could be possible.

   Should there be kw()(a0...) ? It seems the syntax that works for me.

I did not consider overloading 'add_edge'. In fact, it's still not so good
idea. You'd also need to provide similiar overloads for at least
'add_vertex' and 'put' and maybe something else, which makes the
implementation more complex. I though I can only provide new constructor
for boost::proprty and have everything work.

I wonder what's the reason to require conversion/construction of keywords<>?
