Maybe this is all a distraction. I think it may be a much bigger
problem that the graph library's license, IIUC, seems to be
incompatible with the Boost license requirements. Isn't anyone a
little alarmed about that?

I guess if there's a chance we can relicense it under the Boost
license, that'd solve things, but I'm not sure it's possible. Can
any of the copyright holders comment?
