s/blame/credit/ then.  I do not too deeply care which one is the
default, and if we were adding --no-index without any existing users
today, I probably would suggest making it deref by default (i.e. to
make "diff --no-index" match better what other peoples' diffs do),
but that would be a behaviour change to existing users if done today,
so I think what you did probably is a good thing.
