Concerning 'svn blame', is this a good reason? I've noticed that
there is the same problem when the indentation must be changed
(e.g. because a 'if' is added...). IMHO, 'svn blame' should have
an option to be space-insensitive (possibly depending of where
the space occurs -- and this could depend on the svn:mime-type
value).
