A line graph is actually a function of another graph, denoted L(G). The
line graph of a graph G is composed thusly:

	* The vertices of L(G) are the edges of G
	* Two vertices in L(G) are connected iff their corresponding edges
		in G share a common vertex.

It's a wheel graph, but with an extra vertex between each of the vertices
on the outer ring. See http://mathworld.wolfram.com/GearGraph.html.
