Thanks Jeremiah for the prompt answer. Sorry, I forgot to mention, your
suggested change to graphml.hpp was the first thing I tried yesterday.
Everything compiles with your suggested change, but the result is a runtime
error (boost::any_cast exception). As far as I can tell the problem origins
in line 292 in graphml.hpp. But so far I wasn't able to wrap my mind around
that dynamic_property_map and I couldn't quite figure out yet what is going
on and what is supposed to be going on.
