That actually looks like a really good start -- I haven't had a chance to go
over it in detail, yet. The only thing I would want from the interface is a
one parameter version: is_bipartite(g).

I probably won't be able to close until next week, but either Jeremiah or I
will be responsible for integrating it. To be complete, you should write a
boost test file (I didn't look at the one provided, but if it has some
asserts, its probably also a good start), a page of documentation (we're
still stuck on HTML), and probably an example.
