Thank you for the layout information Guillaume, this will come to use in due time, although it wasn't really what I was after :-) 

Tiago Peixoto, I opened an issue here: linked to this discussion. 

Thank you both for the quick reply, and the interest on implementing this feature.

Best Regards,

Bipartite projection is currently not implemented, but this is a very
easy one. Just open a ticket for it on the website and I'll include an
implementation when I have some time.
