We'd all like to have complete history, the question is simply how it
is provided.  I'm going to look into making tailor migrate across the
broken svn revisions (as this will have to be fixed no matter *what*
we move to), but I'm not sure when I'll get to it.

Monotone has viewmtn, which, as I understand it, is similar to ViewVC
(which I had to look up).  You can see a demo (running on the monotone
repository) at viewmtn.angrygoats.net.  An example revision graph:


There is also a tool called 'monotone-viz', which allows local
browsing of monotone history and changes.  (Since the entire history
is available locally, this is reasonable, unlike svn or CVS.)


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
