Apparently Google /really/ wanted to send a 1 word response.

It all depends your type of graph. It's hard to determine where performance
increases could be made without seeing roughly what you're doing. However,
if you want a persistent, dynamic graph, you're only real option is using
adjacency_list<OEL, listS> (OEL is an out edge list selector).
Unfortunately, using the listS selector means you'll have to keep track of
vertex indices.

If you were going to wait for 1.40, I might suggest using undirected_graph
or directed_graph. They're built for exactly these purposes.
