Large projects may contain a complicated graph. If there are loads of commits on each branch, it is hard to follow the forks and merges.
Add an option to compress the log view so that it only shows fork and merge commits with the full graph.
I've attached a patch which does this and also includes an ultra compressed mode which only displays branches and tags. That is displayed without graph as the graph makes no sense in this case.
