#' Coerce a [`cranly_network`] to an [`igraph::graph`] object
#'
#' @param x a [`cranly_network`] object.
#' @param reverse logical. Should the direction of the edges be reversed? See details. Default is [`TRUE`].
#' @param ... currently not used.
#'
#' @details
#'
#' The convention for a [`cranly_network`] object with `perspective =
#' "package"` is that the direction of an edge is from the package
#' that is imported by, suggested by, enhances or is a dependency of
#' another package, to the latter package. `reverse` reverses that
#' direction to correctly compute relevant network summaries (see
#' `summary.cranly_network`). `reverse` is only relevant when the
#' `attr(x, "perspective")` is `"package"` and is ignored when
#' `attr(x, "perspective")` is `"author"`, in which case the resulting
#' [`igraph::graph`] object represents an undirected network of
#' authors.
