Would it be useful if qlog supported a history horizon as a parameter,
i.e. don't bother looking back more than 10k revisions? If enabled, it
could have a button to say "show the lot".

I know that. But, while they don't publicly admit it, I'm sure *some*
Emacs users occasionally use other cool apps like Firefox, right? :-)

I think qlog is fast approaching the point where it could tempt even
Emacs users to view bzr history that way. Even if I'm wrong, it's good
to get feedback on what we ought to do to make it even better/faster.
