       lei-blob - display a git blob, reconstructing from mail if necessary

       lei blob [OPTIONS] OID

       Display a git blob.  The blob may correspond to a message from the
       local store, any local external, or blobs associated with a project git
       repository (if run from a git (working) directory).  For blobs which do
       not exist, it will attempt to recreate the blob using patch emails.

           Specify an additional .git/ directory to scan.  This option may be
           given multiple times.

           Default: the output of "git rev-parse --git-dir"

           Do not look in the git repository of the current working directory.

           Do not look in mail storage for "OID".  This is implied by
           "--oid-a", "--path-a", and "--path-b".

       -A OID-A
           Provide pre-image object ID as a hint for reconstructing "OID".

       -a PATH-A
           Provide pre-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing "OID".

       -b PATH-B
           Provide post-image pathname as a hint for reconstructing "OID".

           Provide more feedback on stderr.

       The following options are also supported and are described in lei-q(1).

           Remote externals only get queried when the blob needs to be
           reconstructed from patch emails.

       -I LOCATION, --include=LOCATION
