Difficult gitk Graphs

On the Git mailing list I've talked about one of the repositories I develop on/maintain, as its graph in gitk is somewhat interesting. Today I took a couple of redacted screenshots from two of the interesting parts of the history.

The first image is from a set of octopus merges that occurred in the history. This probably would look better if we had just used git-rebase to transplant the commits instead of merging them, but at the time the user who created these was still quite new to Git...
