Re: [Subclipse-dev] Revision graph and cache implementation

Hi. I have just committed more changes:
- fixed the problem with the duplicated zoom combobox. I was
contributing to the menu bar in a wrong way.
- now each branch has a different colour.
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/gimenete/2762545179/sizes/o/)
- you can navigate through connections. If you click on a connection
the graph scrolls to the targeted node.
- nodes can be selected. At this moment this is only useful to
highlight a node. The target node of a connection is highlighted when
you scroll to it by clicking on the connection. Also the node that
matches the path and revision of the working copy is highlighted when
the graph is displayed.
- I've also done some code clean up. There were some source files with
more than one class. Now each non-trivial class has its own file.

I have tried to implement the 10,000 foot view. It is implemented on
the OverviewOutlinePage class, but I haven't been able to make it
work. I have just copied an example of the IBM redbook on GEF and EMF,
but it doesn't work. I'll investigate...

Mark, I'll be pleased to continue working on the revision graph after
the GSoC :)
