// Package graph implements a DAG used internally to represent config objects.
// All entities in the LUCI config are represented by nodes in a graph. Nodes
// are linked with directional edges. Cycles are forbidden. Each edge is
// annotated with a name of the relation that added it (e.g. "triggered_by").
// There can be multiple edges between a given pair of nodes, e.g.
// "triggered_by" and "triggers" edges between a builder(...) and a
// trigger(...). When detecting cycles or traversing the graph, edge annotations
// are not considered. They are used only to improve error messages when
// reporting dangling edges (e.g. Builder X references undefined trigger T via
// "triggered_by").
// Each node:
// * Has a unique identifier, called key. A key is a list of
// (string kind, string id) pairs. Examples of keys:
// [luci.bucket("ci")]
// [luci.bucket("ci"), luci.builder("infra-builder")]
// * Has a props dict of arbitrary properties (all keys are strings, values
// are arbitrary).
// * Has a captured stack trace of where in Starlark it was defined (for error
// messages).
// * Is immutable.
// Key kinds support special syntax to express special sorts of kinds:
// * '_...' kinds are "private". When printing nodes names, (kind, id) pairs
// where the kind is private are silently skipped.
// * '@...' kinds are "namespace kinds". There may be at most one namespace
// kind in a key, and it must come first. When printing node names, the
// namespace ID is conveyed by "<id>:" prefix (instead of "<id>/"). If <id>
// is empty, the namespace qualifier is completely omitted.
// Structs exposed by this package are not safe for concurrent use without
// external locking.
