Re: [igraph] iterator selections and logic short-circuiting

just a comment. I think the expression

E(g)[!a && b]

does not make much sense, because '&&' is _not_ an element-wise operator. E.g.:

    a <- c(FALSE, TRUE, TRUE)
    b <- c(FALSE, FALSE, TRUE)
    a && b
    # [1] FALSE
    a & b

'&&' is actually only evaluates the second argument is the first one
evaluates to TRUE.
