Personally I'm always frustrated when I hit a dead end during git
blame. Even if the original repo will be kept around, it's an added
obstacle. And at some point, I'm sure it will no longer be available.

Just the other week I was trying to find the rationale for something
in a (non-Qt) project, and hit that kind of dead end. The code had
been moved in from another repo, without history, and the original
repo was not available anymore.
