Description
We should have an option to g.laplacian() to return the signless Laplacian, which is attracting attention these days, and which is calculated by D+A
instead of DA
(see p. 12 of http://www.doiserbia.nb.rs/ft.aspx?id=035013020795011C, for example).
Thanks to Steve Butler for the feature request.

We usually add ticket number when we fix a bug. So it's not needed here.
LGTM.

Signless laplacian is indeed gaining popularity as evident in the papers below. So can I add the option to the current Laplacian Matrix method to return signless laplacian matrix?
