It strikes me that what you're really looking for is either

    -rN:M -> [N, M-1],

which would make the two blame variants symmetrical, or

    -rN:M -> [N+1,M]

as you don't really have to find "the next interesting change" -- you
only have to make sure the first bound is inclusive, as with -c, rather
than exclusive, as with -r. That would also imply

     -cN:M -> [N+1,M]

and I'm not sure we currently do it that way.
