It does.  But that's not useful when you're trying to find out who wrote
the last verstion of a specific function or even a single line.  

`git blame' is the best way I know but I need to track content across
files, so it gets pretty tough even with that tool's support for
tracking content.  I wrote some scripts to parse the "porcelain" output
of `git blame' and the -w (ignore whitespace) flag is vital, but it's a
lot of tedious work nevertheless.
