Yes... The type of the property map generated by the get() function is built
for a *const* graph (since you're passing graph as const&), but your're
declaring EdgeWeightMap over a non-const graph (as in property_map<Graph,
...>). I think the most appropriate fix is to change the definition of
typedef boost::property_map<const Graph, double const EdgeProp::*>::type
Another solution might be to always pass by non-const reference, but that's
not really good style. I would have thought that property_map was
appropriately specialized for const/non-const versions. I'll have to look
More generally, I'm a bit mystefied by the "<Graph, double

It's pointer-to-member syntax. Read from right to left You're saying that
the type is a "pointer to a member of EdgeProp that is of type double." Or
in this case, a pointer to a const EdgeProp that's a double.
