Aaaagh! If you look at a file with 1 author, you won't see the different
authors come up in different colours. Let me quote from the manual:

  When you hover the mouse over a line in the blame info column,
  all lines with the same revision are shown with a darker
  background. (That's what you are seeing)

  Lines from other revisions which were changed by the same author
  are shown with a light background. (You missed this bit)

  If you left click on a line, all lines with the same revision
  are highlighted, and lines from other revisions by the same
  author are highlighted in a lighter colour.

Try looking at a file with multiple authors, like

No, but it is then less obvious why the colouring is different.

Correct. You can only build TBlame and SubWCRev without the full

That's why I have only looked at the simple (pure C) parts rather than
the GUI which is not my area of expertise.
