Something I forgot to mention (yes, I forgot to mention something here
as well as for the fgl announcement):
I sent out an email during the week asking people what they'd prefer in
terms of semantics as a pure Haskell implementation for "dot -Tcanon".
I didn't end up getting around to implementing this yet (as I wanted to
get all these packages out first and I'm still reverse-engineering all
the corner cases dealing with what happens to nodes in a cluster that
has the same name as another cluster), but the infrastructure for doing
so is all there so there may be a 29220.127.116.11 release soon with this

> * `NodeCluster` has been generalised to not have to take an `LNode`
> for the node type; the type alias `LNodeCluster` is available if you
> still want this.
> * Several documentation typos fixed, including one spotted by Kevin
> * The test-suite now allows running individual tests.
