Very helpful! But for a newbie like me, calling the sample file graphviz.py was a bit confusing at first. After stumbling around a bit, I saw I was attempting to import the sample file itself, instead of the real graphviz. Might want to rename the sample file..

Thanks for the tutorial. Did you figure out a way to stylize final states (like double circle)?

edit: found the doc for it: use attr method and shape kwarg.
edit2: now I wonder how to stylize initial states, namely to get an edge without predecessor to point at it?

Hey this is really cool. I am trying to figure out how to a couple of things.
How to deal with rendering multiple subgraphs ?
How to create a subgraph border.

I am not sure also what diffence is between a subgraph and a cluster?
