Here is where you should mention what changed since v5, to help focus
the attention of reviewers that have read earlier versions.

Still no mention that distances less than 10 are invalid, or that a node
to itself defaults to 10 and can't be changed, or that other distances
default to 20. But that starts to get complex enough, and you cover it
elsewhere, so I'm okay with what you have here.
Interface looks sane, but I'll leave others to do the code review.
