I'm trying to keep the visual design consistent across browsers
without CSS support (I mainly use w3m) and CSS scares me:

The, <ul><li>... in the /$MID/t/ (as opposed to /$MID/T/) endpoint
might be what you're looking for.  See the "[flat|threaded]" links.

I run out of horizontal space with the giant fonts I like to
use, but it might be preferable for some folks.

And about the 2/38 tree structure; I am starting to avoid it
(for Xapian users, at least) but haven't performed the reindex
on all my servers, yet:

Of course, Xapian is only an optional dependency and won't
affect git internals.

I might end up having to nuke history occasionally anyways,
(in case somebody invokes the DMCA, or there's enough spam
 to warrant permanent deletion)
