Sorry, but that's not possible and would even be wrong in the revision

But the last committed revision is *not* the revision where the tag is
copied from!

It's not reasonable. Please try to understand. You're still confusing
the last committed revision with the HEAD revision.

Content-wise, the path might be the same in revision 11 as in revision
10. But it's not the same. Revision numbers are per-repository, not

It wouldn't be consistent but wrong. The graph doesn't show the last
committed revisions but the copy relations of urls. Using the last
committed revisions would mean to show wrong information.
