That would require another window on top of the left info view and the
file contents view. A little much work for just showing the headings
which should be clear anyway (I mean, nobody would confuse e.g. the
revision numbers with line numbers, or dates with authors, ...)

And when should the statusbar show that information? When the
mousepointer is over the revision? When the revision is selected?

I don't really plan to implement printing of the blames. A printout of
sourcecode looks really ugly with all the line breaks...
