That's a shame. Have you filed a bug report at the project, asking for
comprehensive API documentation?

Also: Thank you for replying chronologically (response immediately
follows what you're responding to). Please make your posts easier to
read by removing quoted material that you *aren't* responding to; this
goes by the term “trim quoted material”.

This message is an example of what I'm advocating: responses are
interleaved like a conversation, the only quoted material shows what I'm
responding to, and attribution lines say who wrote each level.

The Python Package Index <URL:> has a search
feature; searching for “network graph” gives many results
I'm not familiar with such tasks though, so can't advise as to which
libraries might be better.
