Ellipses in diagrams don't appear in the rendered output:

      ---Z---o---X---...---o---A---C---D
          \                       /
           o---o---Y---...---o---B

The same issue exists for asterisks:

              o---*---o topic
             /
    o---o---o---*---o---o master

Hopefully we can make the rendered output resemble an ellipsis of some sort, or otherwise communicate that part of the graph has been elided.

But some asterisks really should be nodes, e.g.:

                                "topicB"
               o---o---o---o---o---* (pretend merge)
              /                   /
             /o---o---o----------'
            |/        "topicA"
        o---o"master"
             \                    "topic"
              o---o---o---o---o---o

Maybe only asterisks with a single parent should be considered edge decoration.

@aroben Parse asterisks as nodes
This might need some refinement in order to satisfy #18, since sometimes
asterisks are used to represent "more history happened here, but we
don't care what exactly".
