Lovely! It will improve TortoiseBlame greatly!

However, it's till pretty cumbersome to try to find the root of a
specific change by blaming back multiple revisions, one at the time.
This is especially true if it takes some time to get the blame
information. You spend much time waiting for communication with the
server.

I would like to concur with Michiels request to add a slider that would
make it possible to "scroll" back in time, using only local data
gathered when the blame command was executed.

I realise that this would be a pretty big change, but how big? Stefan,
do you have any idea about if it would be doable without a complete
rewrite of TortoiseBlame?
