It's SVG, which is both cool and not so cool

I'm volunteering for testing indeed.
out of the box, the plugin does nothing, as it tests for the 'svn' type backend. Ignoring that, the main thing to walk through is the 'non numeric' revision id's of monotone. The plugin expects revision identifiers to be numeric (as far as i understand, for sorting only)
I got quickly stuck at that point.

And interface to "toposort" would be needed in order to order nodes. Having this would be übercool (and light SVN vs heavy raster is a plus to me).

Toposort is available via automate, so no problem there.
Also, the RevTree Plugin author has expressed interest in adapting his plugin for other vc backends, so I think he would be willing to accept patches.
For the mtn backend, all those parts that try to make a revision graph out of the linear svn revision sequence (pattern matching, etc.) would not be needed, as we have this information expressed explicitly.

Are you volunteering for trying how good or bad it plays with the TracMonotone version control backend?
