I'd like to see improvements in log -g, particularly the API's. I can
think of a couple off the top of my head. I think others have been
kicked around:

1) Add some kind of "depth/recursion" feature to control how far it
will recurse. This could possibly be expressed as none/one/infinity.
I am not sure there is a need for anything in between. Today we have
"none/infinity" and we really need support for "one" for performance
reasons.

2) When just getting "normal" logs, a boolean for the revision that
indicates if it was a "merge". The user of the API could then do a
follow-up log -g on just that revision when/if needed.

These are all in the name of being able to build a better revision
graph. I'd love to see a revision graph API but I think we need the
repository to track copies before that can happen. Until then, better
API for tools that maintain their own cache.
