It's not obvious from the repository where that would
be.  It's clear that they have rearranged their
repository around their new API.  I guess I'd have to
subscribe to their list and ask around.  I'm not sure
what the benefit would be of pointing to a dead branch
of their CVS tree though.  From their archives, it's
not looking likely that they're going to continue
developing their new, incomplete API, but I see no
indication at all that they plan to resume with the
old API either.

I don't know how central the UML stuff is to graph.  

I think I just passed my "I don't care THAT much"
threshhold.  I'm trying to picture myself tracking
down the 0.4.20 branch so I can whip the graph
developers into a quixotic crusade to save it.  I
don't even use graph myself.  :)  Its only consumer in
GUMP is Maven.
