It doesn't get into an infinite loop any more. Hopefully.

## Known bugs
-- The graph is time-based, so data from multiple development branches can overlap at times resulting
- in an ugly mess. If anyone has a good solution to that it'd be much appreciated.
+- The graph is time-based, Git isn't, and data from merged development branches will occasionally
+ get inserted between main branch revisions resulting in an ugly mess. Preventing this would take a
+ little effort, using squash commits and the like, but that's up to the people doing the work. :)
- We're using `TAP::Harness::Archive`'s idea of what a "pass" is, which is wrong and counts skips as
passes. This inflates the pass rate slightly.
