Yes I think that looks pretty good -- one small detail is that currently
there's a huge amount of whitespace on both sides of the version numbers,
which makes it harder to match-up branches and their version numbers &c.
Can this whitespace be reduced?

[Ideally it'd automatically adjust to fit the widest category-name/version,
but I don't know if that's easy using html or not; still the current amount
of whitespace is excessive even for very long category names, and even more
so for versions.]

BTW, since we're talking about arch-zoom, here are some miscellaneous gripes
I had when I first noticed that it was running on sourcecontrol:

  (1) There's no (obvious) way of finding out the archive location from the
      browser (e.g., when a user is browsing the above, it would be nice if
      there were some way for him to get the string

      This not really a bug, more of a missing feature -- it would be nice to
      be able to give a single location that users could both browse, and use
      to get the necessary archive registration info from.

      [I ran into this problem while looking for the location of James'
      archive -- from the sourecontrol home, it's easy to find your way to
      the browser for his archive, but it took a much longer time to actually
      find out where his archive was located!]

  (2) It would be nice to have a way of listing patches that change a given
      file, e.g., from the "Tree directory" view.  Often when using a
      browser, I'm interested more in the history of a given file or
      directory than the general history of the project.


Next to fried food, the South has suffered most from oratory.
