No, I don't. sorry. Anyway, from my experience with qgit I can say
that one thing is to produce a revision graph, another thing is to
produce a _fast_ and (perhaps more important) no memory hogger
revision graph.

Both qgit and gitk implement heavy optimizations and a lot of tricks
to make that happen. IMHO this is almost mandatory with long and
complex histories like Linux tree. I'm not sure a generic graph
builder is up to the task.

More, gitweb is designed to be used by many people at the same time,
while qgit and gitk are for personal use only, and this adds burden
from the performance/resources  point of view.
