Displaying that in a proper log view instead of a name list could also be
okay. BUT one would first have to know for certain the branch
heads/tips/ends of each package, so you would know which versions you have
to load to be able to display a complete log. Also keep in mind the case
when you do not (yet) have a working copy.

Could be done by fetching the directory listing, downloading the top
version (which would require the numbers to continue to increase
monotonously, hmm), extracting the history, eliminating all versions from
the listing that are contained in the history (which would still require
the names to be unique, hmm), repeat with the top version of the remaining
listing, until none are left. Takes a while until it's finished and has
some, hopefully rare, bad case scenarios...
