Maybe, but 96MB of resident memory for a 1000-node graph looks bad,
especially considering p is low. Is the internal representation of
inductive graphs perhaps not very memory-efficient? I still haven't read
Erwig's paper...

I know this is probably not fair, but I'm comparing these numbers with a
C implementation which uses Ruby's C API for its complex data
structures, and a 10,000 nodes graph uses around 6MB of memory.
