Title: Library loses attributes

There is a conflict between the default conventions of the library and the layout programs. The layout programs assume node labels = "N" unless otherwise specified. The library assumes label = "". So, if the given input graph is processed by the library, one ends up with

digraph { a; b; }

which involves a loss of information when sent to dot.

digraph {
  a [label=""]
