As I tried to state in the original post (I probably wasn't clear
enough) I'm not talking about a standard *implementation*, just a
standard *API*, like the DB-API. This could easily cover all kinds of
strange beasts such as directed or undirected, weighted or unweighted
(etc.) graphs; multigraphs, chain graphs, hypergraphs, who knows.

I'm basically just suggesting that it might be useful to have a
"standard" interface for these things. It may be that the simple de
facto standard that David cites is sufficient (although it certainly
doesn't cover hypergraphs -- but that's possibly going a bit too far
anyway.)
