Stefan's issues are more specific to SVN itself and limitations that
we will run in that will prevent us from making a perfect graph in all
scenarios. I think we can still safely pursue adding the feature
based on the current API's. Some problems you will run into:

1) This setting makes log a lot slower.

2) The merged revisions will nest "infinitely" but we only need the
first level and can discard the rest. We hope the API will grow new
options to control this in the future, and that will help with 1.
