query edge chain(s)

I'm creating a pipe command that sweeps a circular profile along an edge selection.

The opSweep function accepts edges or faces, but said edges must be contiguous. My command, on the other hand, should allow for both contiguous and non-contiguous edges. Contiguous ones would be federated into a single sweep operation, thus creating one continuous pipe along the selected edges. Non-contiguous edges would be treated independently.

Put another way, the edge selection should be grouped into islands of connected edges, and then each respective island will be swept independently of the others.

What's the cleanest way to go about this?
