Kidney blame with relaxed older end bound

Thinking about the behaviour of 'svn blame -r 50:20 file_at_50':

Right now, if I'm not mistaken, it wants 'file_at_5 -r 20' to exist. Johan
suggested it should automatically round 20 up to the oldest revision in
which the file existed, to enable, for example, 'svn blame -r 50:0' by
analogy to 'svn log -r 0:50'.

But what if the file existed in revision 10, got deleted in revision 11,
and resurrected (by 'svn cp file_at_10 file && svn ci') in r30? What
should the end of the blame chain be --- file_at_r30, file_at_r20, or file_at_r10?
