> When you do a blame on a line of code, to figure out when the last change was, do you want to see the "fix whitespace to match style guide" commit that someone insert in the branch at the end, or the actual meaningful change that occurred earlier?

    git blame -w # works with git diff and git show too
(You might also be interested in --word-diff=color for git diff and git show)

The example was "whitespace" but the point was "trivial subsequent change"
