This is not a good idea, since "g.degree_property_map('out')" will
create an entire property map anew (which is O(N)) each time you want a
single degree (which should be O(1)). It is best to compute the property
map before the loop, and just look it up when you need it.

    d = graph.degree_property_map('out') # this is O(N)

    k = d[v]  # this is O(1)
