Sorry -- I knew there had been a thread about this, and remembered
with regret that I hadn't followed it closely enough at the time :-).

I completely agree, as does Mike Pilato (who sat with me as we
stumbled through our intuition into the real behavior).

So what you're proposing is:

   svn blame foo.c behaves as currently
   svn blame -rN foo.c behaves like 'svn blame -r1:N foo.c'
   svn blame -rN:M foo.c behaves as currently


If so, +1 all over that.
