Can you bisect to see when the feature stopped working as you expect?

Unlike a forward blame, where the command tries to find a commit
that is responsible for a line being in the final result (i.e.
typically, HEAD), a reverse blame is not about finding a commit
that is responsible for a line (that used to be in the oldest
commit) not being in a more recent codebase.  It finds up to which
commit each line survived without getting touched since the oldest
commit in the range.
