Bug Description

By definition, merged and abandoned branch are "only of historical interest". They should not appear in the most used branch listings (product/+branches, product/+branchlisting, person/+branches) where they cause needless clutter.

Here's one way to addressing the issue:
* All branch listing pages accept a show=all argument.
* All branch listing pages have a link at the top that reads "Show all branches" or "Hide merged and abandoned branches", depending on the presence of the "show=all" argument.

By default, all branch listings hide merged and abandoned branches.

To tweak that excellent suggestion a little: at the bottom of the listing, either "[Show|Hide] n merged/abandoned branches", or "No merged/abandoned branches" (in both normal and show=all views), depending on whether there are any.
