node ordering requirement- can Graph# help with this?

  Hi, I'm trying to meet some graph layout goals and wonder if what I'm doing is possible with Graph# or related software.    I've used graphviz to draw tasks in build scripts, showing their dependencies.  For example, is drawn from

   One thing I don't like about the results is that while tasks are drawn left from right given the direction of the dependencies, the top-down order sometimes doesn't match how things run.    For instance, from the example, "default" depends on "OpenSource" running before "Release".  I would prefer then that "Release" is drawn below "OpenSource", so the top to bottom order indicates the order they run.  Is there a way I can achieve this?

  Thanks much.
