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

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.
