Using graphviz

Perhaps this has come up before, but I wrote a small hack to the log
command that causes it to output data suitable for feeding into 'dot'
from the graphviz package.  This is kind of neat to see as it will
graphically represent all the branches and stuff for you, but it outputs
files that use up too much memory in most viewing programs, even if
you're just looking at the past few hundred history elements.

I've thought of trying to alter it to compress all sets of changes
between branch and/or merge points down to one node, and that might help
a lot, but I was curious if anybody had any other suggestions.

The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they
be properly armed.  -- Alexander Hamilton
