I've read it, it sounds fine.

But for the "further directions" part, I have a suggestion what you could 
implement if you should have time left(before doing possible incomplete 
backends for mecurial/bzr):
In gitk, you can view the source in a special mode, where the whole code is 
highlighted by the exact commit and author that changed that code. Holding 
the mouse over the highlighted code, a tooltop shows the assigned author and 
commit-message for that code-line. Additionally it would be great if the 
tooltip showed how the code looked before the commit.

That would be a great feature, and gitk shows that it's very possible with 
git(opposed to svn).

Greetings, David
