With Subversion 1.2.3, I get this error:

svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/!svn/bc/1234/foo/trunk'
svn: '/foo/trunk' is not a file

This suggests that it only works on files. "svn help blame" and The
Book [1] only talk about files, not about directories, so I don't
think it was intended to work on directories.
