The graph works for hourly repeaters in exactly the same way as it works
in all other cases.  It illustrates whether the task was done on a given

The gain is being able to use org-habit at all with hourly repeating
tasks.  At the moment, this is unnecessarily precluded, and not even by
the error I removed; the actual error that pops up if you build the
agenda with an hourly habit is rather cryptic:

if: Invalid duration string: .+5h

As Kyle mentioned, I don't think authorial intent counts for a whole lot
here since the code was last touched in 2009, years before hourly
repeaters were added.
