It is technically possible (and not very hard). We have functionality in
log that allows plugins to extend the key/value pairs that are displayed
for a revision. qbzr/bzr-gtk/bazaar explorer could display these extra
key/value pairs and would automatically gain the ability to display svn,
git and hg revision numbers/shas/etc.
