Once you factor the time of C-x v g into the equation, the 5.5s of
difference are not all that impressive.  On my computer, previous to
version 2.1 we were talking about about 5 _minutes_ of runtime.

I don't think it was as much the performance rather than the
_convenience_ or knowledge.  Most people call git blame without -w at
first, and sometimes they don't even know about the option.  Emacs
doesn't use -w by default when doing C-x v g either IIRC.  Getting it in
there is somewhat cumbersome.
