    initial v1  
    1313There are different ways to create several graphs, and sometimes the planar embeddings associated with them changes depending on which function you call. Besides, if we have a function for BIBD or a function for OA graphs we can add information there about their parameters about strongl regular graphs, and it would have no meaning to add this in a much more general function handling intersection graph.

    15 Besides, some people who read your web page and who may want to create the strongly regular graphs you mention may have absolutely no interest in knowing how they are built, and they may not know even what a design is. I am not just talking, a colleague of mine who could not care less about designs wanted me to implement the graphs of some generalized triangles just the other day as well as other things, and she it typically of this type : she wants to work on the graph, but she is not sufficiently interested in the subject to try to learn what an OA is and how they can be built.

    1717Besides, we may want n the future to build an internal database of strongly regular graphs in Sage, and it is interesting for us to know that the functions only have to be fed with integers and not wit something more complicated like OA that we should take from somewhere else. It is better if all functions expect the same kind of arguments.
