Good idea.

This is blame.showRoot, isn't it?

You consistently write `git-blame`, i.e. with dash and between
backticks.  The patch context mentions five git commands: two of them
are linkgit macros, but the other three are all written without dash
and between single quotes.  I think it should be written without dash,
but I'm not sure about single quotes vs. backticks.  grep tells me
they are both widespread for enclosing git commands.

Config variables are usually written in camelCase in the
documentation, see e.g. branch.autoSetupMerge in the patch context

Perhaps "Show blank object ID", since we're moving away from SHA-1?

Again camelCase.

Should '--date' be enclosed in... single quotes or backticks?  I don't
