How many times or how often do you need to call betweenness()? If 
it's called only few times or once in a while then using the GC 
is good enough. But if you have to call it many millions of 
times, all those GC array allocations could cost some time, even 
if they are small arrays. In this case allocating them on the 
stack (or not allocating them, using externally allocated 
buffers) helps.
