I don't have a horse in this race, but in general I don't view "git
blame" output as a reliable indicator of authorship. I know that
refactoring maneuvers as simple as moving blocks of code or changing
indentation can get git-blamed on someone who had nothing to do with
writing the code. If I do need to know who wrote something,
consulting "git blame" is only a first step in answering that
question, not an answer itself.
