I'm not too surprised. I literally looked at the first screenshot from
your output and thought "surely git can do that with some minor tweaks".
Nor am I surprised that there are cases where the output is funny (99%
of the time I spent on it was tracking down that graph-padding bug).
I have no problem taking this in contrib or whatever, until a point when
Git is capable of doing the same thing itself. I just hoped to trick you
into working on Git. :)
