Severity: major
Problem: If a dot file contains subgraphs, those aren't in the output plain format.

[erg] The plain format was not designed to handle subgraphs or other more sophisticated graph features. The plain format was only intended to work with the simplest input, with the trade-off being the ease of parsing the format. As such, I have entered your bug report as a modification request. Rather than try to extend the format, we recommend that you create dot language output, which obviously handles subgraphs. You can either parse this directly, use the parser in the graph library, or convert it to GXL and then use an XML-based parser.
