/*
 * The data structures for a graph are mainly double-linked lists, combined
 * with hash maps.
 *
 * We have single structure per interpreter, -> GG.  This structure holds the
 * counter and string buffer for the generation of automatic graph names.
 *
 * We have one structure per graph, -> G. It holds a single hash map for the
 * attributes, and two hash maps with associated lists for nodes and arcs. The
 * maps for retrieval by name, the lists when searches by various features are
 * done. Beyond we have the counters and string buffer for the generation of
 * automatic arc- and node-names. As the information for nodes and arcs are
 * identical they are pulled together in their own common structure -> GCC.
 *
 * The basic information of both nodes and arcs themselves is the same as
 * well, name and attributes, and the graph owning them. Pulled together in a
 * common structure, -> GC. This also holds the prev/next linkage for the per
 * graph lists starting in GCC. The node/arc structures are pseudo-derived
 * from this structure.
 *
 * Each node manages two lists of arcs, incoming and outgoing ones. The list
 * elements are -> GL structures, also called the interlinks, as they weld
 * nodes and arcs together. Neither node nor arcs refer directly to each
 * other, but go through these interlinks. The indirection allows the
 * insertion, movement and removal of arcs without having to perform complex
 * updates in the node and arc structures. Like shifting array elements, with
 * O(n^2) effort. The list anchors are -> GLA structures, keeping track of the
 * list length as well.
 *
 * Arcs manage their source/target directly, by refering to the relevant
 * interlink structures.
