I agree with Florian’s explanation and objections. Without major changes to Graph, inheriting from it is not useful. It may turn out that a CliqueGraph subclass is not necessary after all. To decide that, could you please let us know:

- What are the benefits you hope to get from subclassing Graph as CliqueGraph?
- What are the drawbacks of simply using Graph to store your clique graph? Are any of them unacceptable?
