620a8b3427 (Emden R. Gansner 2014-01-30 15:21:11 -0500 31) Remove antiquated code and replace multiple algorithm implementations with a single one.
I wonder what the antiquated code is? This probably needs more elaboration. I know @smattr is certainly working on removing antiquated code and replacing redundant algorithms, but I feel this needs to be dealt with as more specific bugs. If I don't hear anything in a while about exactly what this means, let's close this.
