I think that for the typically very dense graphs this in particular
could be very helpful in keeping the actual runtime low. For a fully
connected e*c it really doesn't matter how you program things, all flows
will have the same max and iterating them all is just wasting time.

We just need to figure out which of the many different algorithms are
best on average for our particular constraint sets.
