  I like how it look now. Really neat.

  I have few ideas that may help to improve use of the screen real
estate and improve overall graph usability:

* option to collapse revision nodes that don't have incoming or outgoing
edges.
    e.g. [1] -> [2] -> [3] -> [4] can be collapsed into one node [1 -
4]. Tooltip could show the list of collapsed revisions.
* align branches horizontally, so it would preserve chronology.
    e.g. in your example, nodes [199] and [209] would be on the same
horizontal level as node [197]
* it seem like right now there is a lot of free space on the screen,
just because tag nodes at the top are quite wide
    maybe shrink the node label and use tooltips to show the actual tag
    another option that can be also convenient in some cases is to allow
to use horizontal orientation for the whole graph.

  regards,
  Eugene
