Well, the "ViewVC" developer has said a different thing (see below). Sorry,
when answering the first time I have not had the time to check the ViewVC
discussion list .

TortoiseSVN's graphing stuff is custom to that tool, isn't
librarized, runs
only on Windows, and is pretty slow. The reason it is slow is basically the
same reason that nobody has written a librarized svngraph program --
Subversion's repository data is stored in a way that is not conducive
generating such a graph. TortoiseSVN works around this, I believe, by
basically replaying the entire history of the repository and generating a
local cache that *does* contain the required information not present in the
Subversion repository proper.
