You can load pretty much anything via the about view if it's configured
to point at the correct branch, just append the relevant path to the
/about/ URL.

I also had some patches a while ago [1] to add a render mode to CGit's
tree view which is probably closer to what you want, but I don't think
there was ever any feedback and I didn't pursue it.

There's a version rebased onto an up-to-date master on my GitHub [2].
