Yes and no.

The 'start < end' check is implemented at the library level, not at the
client level (so switching to a non-cmdline client won't help). And the
history walk is unidirectional for ≥1.1 servers (see svn_ra_* calls in
svn_client_blame5()).

But the idea itself --- of computing the blames in reverse to determine
deleted lines --- is sound. And I'd love to see it implemented.
