Well, if you know/suspect that the bug is in module/comonent/subsystem
X, it's easy to scan commit messages for changes affecting X.

While that might be desirable for a personal repo, it would really piss
me off if a coworker was saving *every* *single* *version* of a file,
whether it compiled or not, in a shared repo. I think the noise would
far outweigh the useful signal.
