Sure, but the more digits you put in, the more stuff gets pushed off the
back of the line. On a 80-character terminal, with code that's 79
characters long, parsing blame output is difficult enough as it is; adding
more space just seems like it would make the problem harder, and is only
required in a handful of cases.

And we still have the problem of too-long user names (such as jerenkrantz in
our own repo).
