during that time IIRC the download counter has been reset at least twice
due to some server problems.

Incidentally I've been reading BGL docs yesterday and I find it as a
very good and interesting library. I started looking at it because I
wanted to simulate a toy neural network with it (the non-layered variant
with memory etc, so vectors and matrices wouldn't work). But after
investigating BGL I'm considering using it in my current project: yade.
That's because interactions (between elements) in yade are stored in a
similar data structure that BGL offers. And BGL's data structure is much
more mature. This is very tempting, although I haven't decided yet.
Perhaps a simple try the code and benchmark it will answer that :>

Above it was a bit off-topic, but I just wanted to underline the fact
that extending BGL with new algorithms is better than not. Maybe you
should just mail directly to the library authors?
