Yep. You can get equivalent but slower behavior by using
See the recently updated stats documentation which has a bit more detail:

Your matrix needs to specify the connectivity from each point to every
other point. Since you have 19 along one dimension and 141 along the other,
it will need to be shape (2679, 2679). grid_to_graph will give you an array
of this size, and then you'll need to add additional entries for the
elements in the array that correspond to the diagonal positions. To get a
handle on the problem, you might want to start with a smaller toy dataset
(maybe 3x3 like in the docs) so that it's easier to visualize what's
happening (e.g., plot the connectivity with
along the way). If you get it working, it could make for a nice example to
add to MNE!
