Wow, I guess that would be superior, but I don't feel it's worth all
the time spent debugging it and looking at the pathological cases for
me to do it...if someone else wants to, though, please do.

Do you mind if I implement column preservation?  (In other words, do
you need a variable `vc-annotate-warp-preserve-column' so you can set
it to nil?)  I believe column preservation is useful, and will save me
time since I plan on using the annotate browse often.  (Most of my
files are of average size, I guess, but I often develop using CVS over
ssh where the remote host is one network hop away, so it's still quite
fast in that case).
