Strangely enough, I use std::set<edge_descriptor> without having to
define a less-than operator. Perhaps it has to do with what the
vertex and edge storage types are? I use vecS for both.

There have been threads in the past where this same solution was
posted. I can't remember what the authors said about portability and
correctness, but I would search the mailing lists for
"edge_descriptor" + "operator".
