If I may interject, I assume you mean that nobody wants to see the
fact that somebody simply changed whitespace. However, the text of
`git help blame' suggests that the `-w' flag obviates the issue:

  Ignore whitespace when comparing the parent's
  version and the child’s to find where the lines
  came from.

Of course, I've never used it, so I may be mistaken in my interpretation.
