[PATCH] hgweb: set overflow on graph nodes in paper theme

Hi Mads,

I agree that just truncating the data isn't the best solution however as show 
in the screenshots, it is currently unusable anyway. One long commit message 
obscures itself *and* the next message. At least by hiding the overflow we can 
read the next one.

I have a number of things I'm working on cleaning up around the graph page, 
and hope to come up with a better solution for this particular problem yet.

This patch is just step 1.

FWIW I wouldn't take that ;-)

Hiding overflow is often aesthetically pleasing as long as the hidden 
information is irrelevant, but it is not a graceful degradation. I think 
practicality beats purity and that the current behavior where text might 
overlap a bit is better than hiding the overflow.
