 - Implement a workaround for browsers that do not understand unordered  
   y-coordinates in the imagemap when generated upside down.  
13    
14  - Fix the slowness of CvsGraph when parsing very large (typically -kb files)  - Fix merge line links after redoing part of merge lines
   by bypassing the parsing of the actual deltatext. On my machine (K6-2/500/256M  
   it makes a difference of 7.5s vs 0.04s on a 93MByte file, without counting  
   disk-overhead; with disk-overhead it takes 12.5s).  
   Downside is that the logentry cannot be expanded if the file is not parsed in  
   full (see below). Use option parse_logs to enable log-expansions.  
   
 - Implemented logentry expansions using %l and %L. You must enable full parsing  
   (option parse_logs) for this to work.

 Alternately, you can hack the 'cvsweb' package to call CvsGraph. There are  
 several scripts and patches available from the CvsGraph homepage (see below for  
 address). However, the scripts are no longer maintained because ViewCVS has  
 native support now.

96      If you are interested in tag-management with respect to the correct branch
97      information, then I suggest that you take a look at the contribution from
98      Henrik Carlqvist. He submitted some server-side scripts that can manage tags
99      in a better fashion than cvs on its own.
