Some of the names suggested above slightly describe the discussed command

For some reason folks suppose the purpose of the command is to show the
creator of each line, however the real purpose is to show the [last]
revision description, i.e. fully qualified name, date, creator, summary.
The creator may be (and is often) constant among revision descriptions.

"linedesc" would be more accurate. However, "annotate" sounds even better
to me, and is familar to cvs users.

Most people think of annotate as an action. Like I want to put an annotation onto this file, rather than thinking of it as telling the revision control system to generate some sort of annotated version of the file.

But you're right, it is familiar to cvs (and apparently clear case) users.
