It seems that there is no implemented solution to the issue. No problem, there is a quick solution using bare hands. (Although we can plot the polygon by the `polygon`

command, there will be in the following a parallel plot of the edges...)

```
def plotLabelledPolygon( vertices, labels, space=0.1 ):
"""for two lists of same length,
of vertices in the real plane, A, B, C, ...
and of labels a, b, ... for AB, BC, ...
we associate a plot object consisting of the segments and the labels.
The labels are positioned corresponding to the middle of the segments,
there is some space left in between.
"""
p = plot( [] )
n = len( vertices )
if n < 3 or n != len( labels ):
return p
zVertices = []
for A in vertices:
if type(A) in ( tuple, list ): zA = A[0] + i*A[1]
elif A in CC : zA = A
else : zA = None # feel free to extend for vectors & Co...
zVertices.append( zA )
for ind in range(n):
j = ind+1 if ind+1 < n else 0
A, zA = vertices[ ind ], zVertices[ ind ]
B, zB = vertices[ j ], zVertices[ j ]
p += line( [ A, B ] )
zBA = zB - zA
if zBA == 0:
print "zA = %s and zB = %s coincide :: IGNORED" % ( zA, zB )
continue
zT = CC( zA + zBA / 2 - space * I * zBA / abs( zBA ) )
label = labels[ ind ]
p += text( '$%s$' % label, ( zT.real(), zT.imag() ) )
return p
```

Examples of usage:

```
vertices = [ (-1,0), (1,0), (0,1) ]
labels = [ 'a', 'b', 'c' ] # or simply abc
p = plotLabelledPolygon( vertices, labels )
p.axes_color( 'gray' )
p.show()
vertices = [ (0,0), (3,-3), (1,0), (3,3) ]
labels = 'abcd'
q = plotLabelledPolygon( vertices, labels, space=0.1 )
q.axes_color( 'gray' )
q.show()
```

(The font, the aspect, the axes, ... can be controlled in the plot object.)
