I believe that the following would do the job:

(defun format-graph-from-root (root-object &rest other-args)
  (apply #'format-graph-from-roots (list root-object) other-args))

...but I confess to not having tested it.  I don't have a test case
handy.  Give it a whirl (note that you'll have to do this in some
package where format-graph-from-roots is visible, or modify the above
to clim:format-graph-from-roots.

If it works properly and I haven't committed some horrible solecism (I
didn't look at the standard for the proper definition of
format-graph-from-root), then perhaps we could put it into McCLIM.

Hope that is helpful,
