This exists (because blame takes rev-list options) and works as expected
(because blame.c handles this case), but is not documented. We could
include rev-list-options.txt, but this wouldn't be accurate because
blame does some of its own commit walking. Perhaps the following

	Follow only the first parent commit upon seeing a merge
	commit. This option can be used to determine when a line
	was introduced to a particular integration branch, rather
	than when it was introduced to the history overall.
