It's part of a plan for generalized graph semantics framework, so we can
discuss EdgeWeightedGraphs, NamedVertexGraphs, etc. Or, more specifically
what to do when graphs don't model those concepts.

They already have... somebody wrote an HTML to quickbook program :) I just
have to dig out a reference to it. Plus, I have some of the quickbook
framework built into the SOC project from 2007. Now if only I can get the
