In Mathematica 8 there's a whole new gamma of functions for graphs, such 
as Graph[...], TreeGraph[...], etc. How do these fit in with the other 
functions that were already present in Mathematica for graph plotting, 
such as GraphPlot[...] ? There are now three ways to work with graphs in 
Mathematica: the new functions introduced in version 8 (Graph[...], 
TreeGraph[...], etc.), the functions that were available since version 6 
(GraphPlot[...], TreePlot[...], etc.), and the Combinatorica Package. 
Does Wolfram have a plan to eventually stick to just one way of doing 
things? Otherwise, it can all get very confusing.
