Since then, two small changes:
  -m is implied for very large graphs (28 or more, I think)
  -bf is implied if the required graphs are trees

Otherwise, a speed change might be due to changes in nauty itself.

Don't assume that the order of graphs coming out of geng, or the
labelling of the graphs, is unchanged between versions.  Keeping
those constant would prevent me from improving the efficiency.
