OK. The graph shows a chronological order of where and when you create
branches and tags (copies) and not every single revision in between.
And that relates to folders not files too. Brings some sanity back into
the graph.When you think about it, repositories with more than a few
hundred revisions getting horrendous to navigate about.

You wont find branching on single files in svn because it's folder based
and a delight to use. Well via TortoiseSVN anyway. It pays to read the
docs a few times with what I and a few others might say in mind.
