I think you misunderstand what I mean with blame in this case.. I mean
the command "git blame". Which is basically the same as "cvs
annotate". Which now just shows that the reason the change was made
was "And another one". Which says nothing. So you have to go back out
and figure out which was the commit that actually contains the
information that you're looking for.

I totally understand that this happens, I'm just arguing for a commit
message that will make life easier in the future :-)

No :-(
