The following is wrong

sage: g1 = Graph(weighted=True)
sage: g2 = Graph(weighted=True)
sage: g = g1.union(g2)
sage: g.weighted()

For both loops and multiedges the union takes an "or" (ie g allows loops if any of g1 or g2 allows loops). Though it is not clear that such rule should apply for weighted. Three possibilities

  • make g weighted if any of g1 or g2 are
  • make g weighted if both g1 and g2 are
  • When g1.weighted() and g2.weighted() are different raise a ValueError and otherwise apply any of the two above rules.

I don't use weighted graph very often, so I don't know what is expected: number as label? dictionary with specific key? If we make the union weigthed if one of the graph is weighted, should we turn None to 0 ? what if one of the graph has "bob" for label ? should we check that weights are consistent ?

The easiest is certainly to raise an error.

Simpler version without errors: make it weighted if both are weighted.

Let's go for it. Passes all tests and doc build.
