I don't think it was ever intended to do anything; the only reason it is
not rejected outright is that "blame" piggy-backs on the regular
revision option parser used by "log" and others.

What would you expect it to do?

I can't think of a sane behavior for "blame --follow". The follow code
is about tweaking path-limiting during traversal, but blame does not use
pathspecs. It tracks content, and the "-C" option already instructs it to
look across file boundaries.
