Well, you're right that an igraph graph can either be directed or
undirected, and a directed graph contains directed edges only. However,
you can *suppress* the arrows of a directed edge on the plot by using
the arrow.mode attribute. arrow.mode can take one of three values:

- 0: no arrowheads are plotted
- 1: an arrowhead pointing to the *source* of the edge is plotted
- 2: an arrowhead pointing to the *target* of the edge is plotted
- 3: both arrowheads are plotted

So, if you want to suppress the arrowheads on some of the edges, you can
do this:

> E(g)$arrow.mode <- 2
> undirected_edge_idxs <- c(0, 2, 7)
> E(g)[undirected_edge_idxs]$arrow.mode <- 0
> plot(g)
