* Simplified construction interface. Most node constructors don't need graph/block arguments anymore.
* Reworked type interface. Type names are optional now. Support for additional linkage types that among others support C++ 'linkonce' semantics now.
* Small changes in constructors and node getters/setters (mostly adding 'const' to some getters)
* code cleanup, smaller improvements in API specification
* bugfixes
