That is a very good feature indeed.  Thanks!

However, I would like an extension to this feature so that
        C-u C-c C-p
would pick up the revision from the current line of the annotate
buffer and annotate the previous revision to that revision, rather
than the revision of the work file as such.

This would make it easier to backtrack a specific change in case there
are many (unrelated) revision in the file.
