 Milestone sage8.8 deleted
As the Sage8.8 release milestone is pending, we should delete the sage8.8 milestone for tickets that are not actively being worked on or that still require significant work to move forward. If you feel that this ticket should be included in the next Sage release at the soonest please set its milestone to the next release milestone (sage8.9).

 Milestone set to sage8.9
OK, we can indeed check for presence of a loop, and set the chromatic number to 0.

 Status changed from new to needs_review
This change updates G.chromatic_polynomial()
to give 0 (in ZZ['x']
). chromatic_number()
already raises a ValueError
when G has loops=True
, so it isn't strictly necessary to change that.
