Nice! I would very much like to see this happen. Unfortunately I have
been way to swamped lately to do anything about it myself...

I'm using TortoiseBlame quite frequently now to trace when certain
changes have been introduced into the code base and by whom. It would be
very nice if you could keep me (and the list) posted about any progress
and I'll be happy to try any nightlies with added functionality.

As I see it the "Blame previous revision" could simply move the slider
to the selected target revision. A quick and nice way jump directly to a
specified point in time. I would also find it natural with menu options
(and hotkeys) to move one (relevant) revision back or forward in time.

If you mean that the "Blame previous revision" should stay with the
exact functionality that is has today, I would suggest renaming it to
"Blame previous revision in new window".
