That sounds quite useful.  My common bug fixing use case is that I find
a function (or a bit of a function) that I think has a bug, and then I
`C-x v g' to find out who "who wrote this crap anyway!!!" (it usually
turns out to be myself), and then I try to see whether any of the lines
are suspiciously new and may have introduced a new bug.

So I'm usually just interested in a screenful of lines.  If we could
have a version of `C-x v g' that only does "blame" for the current
region, for instance, that would certainly fit my use case.
