Not possible right now, no.

By revision number do you mean the changeset or the internal local
revision number which hg assigns to its commits but git does not? If it
is the former, maybe that would be a more appropriate model for

Whatever revision-identifying numbers or strings appear in the output.

I did not use the word bug, I was asked to send a bug report in order to
find out whether there is a bug.

You were asked to file the bug for a different reason: you said there's a difference in behavior here between emasc-25 and master, which would be a problem. Was the version from one of the branches too old?

Another problematic thing is visible on your screenshot here: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2016-01/pngrALEdUf1mc.png

Revisions from two consecutive days are still colored the same. At the time, I thought it to be a bug, but it depends on how big is the range of time between the oldest and the newest revisions in the buffer: after all, the annotation palette is limited.

If the commits were made in N most recent days, one can to tweak the precision (by customizing vc-annotate-display-mode), but you seem to have figured it out already.

Glenn, don't you think it's a problem that we can't distinguish between older commits made on consecutive days? I'd say it's an argument in favor of adopting aHg's scheme, or at least adding it as an option.
