Re: Blame on files that switched between asciii and unicode

I realize the problem you mention about all rows beeing affected, but
shouldnt it be possible to retrieve all versions from repository, convert
them all to UTF-8, then make blame locally?

(Not sure how blame is done usually.. perhaps this would be very
time/resource intensive, but Id rather wait a little longer and get a blame,
then get no blame at all..)
