[Subclipse-dev] Revision graph problem/improvement

One of the general problems with the revision graph is that there is
often too much information. One of the optimizations that you made
was to take items that have been copied and then never modified and
treat them as "tags". Do not show the tag and instead show the tags
in the tooltip. This helped.

There is another class of "problem" that still exists. That is when a
branch is created, the file is never modified and the branch is
eventually deleted. Currently, the deletion of the branch is being
seen as a modification of the file and it shows the branch in the
graph. In this situation the ideal behavior would be to completely
ignore this branch. Do not show it in the graph, do not show it as a

With the tests I am doing, this would dramatically improve the graph
by removing all of the "noise".

Any chance you could look at this, or point Steve in a direction?
