Thanks for the feedback.

I didn't consider that -v would have to be handled differently, but I
see your point (verbose may imply not to drop any information for the
sake of formatting). The previous thread didn't talk about "blame -v",
just "blame" in general, so I thought the consensus of the thread
applied to all blame output, whether -v or regular. But maybe that was
not the intent.

I don't really have a preference one way or the other. I never use
"blame -v" from the command line (and it wasn't really my personal
problem anyway, I just took it on to get some exercise in svn hacking
;). So I'll let you guys decide ...
