here is a simple solution using a counter:

count = 1;

g = LayeredGraphPlot[{1 -> 2, 1 -> 3},

   EdgeRenderingFunction -> ({Thickness[0.001 count++], Arrow[#1]} &)]

However, there is a hitchup. The EdgeRenderingFunction is called twice 

on every edge (I do not know why). To prevent drawing each edge twice 

with different thickness, we may use a function that remembers its values:



getThickness[d_]:=getThickness[d]=0.004  count++;


hope this helps, Daniel
