 * \brief Layout the graph with the vertices at the points of a regular
 * n-polygon.
 * The distance from the center of the polygon to each point is
 * determined by the @p radius parameter. The @p position parameter
 * must be an Lvalue Property Map whose value type is a class type
 * containing @c x and @c y members that will be set to the @c x and
 * @c y coordinates.
