    """Compute load centrality for nodes.

    The load centrality of a node is the fraction of all shortest 
    paths that pass through that node.

    G : graph
      A networkx graph 

    normalized : bool, optional
      If True the betweenness values are normalized by b=b/(n-1)(n-2) where
      n is the number of nodes in G.
    weight : None or string, optional  
      If None, edge weights are ignored.
      Otherwise holds the name of the edge attribute used as weight.

    cutoff : bool, optional
      If specified, only consider paths of length <= cutoff.

    nodes : dictionary
       Dictionary of nodes with centrality as the value.

    Load centrality is slightly different than betweenness.

    This actually computes "load" and not betweenness.
    See https://networkx.lanl.gov/ticket/103

    This calculates the load of each node for paths from a single source.
    (The fraction of number of shortests paths from source that go
    through each node.)

    To get the load for a node you need to do all-pairs shortest paths.

    If weight is not None then use Dijkstra for finding shortest paths.
    In this case a cutoff is not implemented and so is ignored.
