Yes, TSVN and Subversion are just two examples here. We don't tag from
trunk but from branches.

I know you've got some great ideas here. All I'm asking is that you
leave one setting where *all* nodes are shown, without trying to reduce
them. Otherwise we will always get reports about missing nodes.

To show the merging info, we need another Subversion API first. Only if
we can get the Subversion devs to implement that, *then* we can talk
about showing merge info in a graph (doesn't have to be the revision
graph, could be a separate one).
