I thought :/ was a revspec, which is why I was scratching my head so
hard. Did we introduce this ambiguity intentionally?
This errors out:
git log :/Makefile
So, I have to do either of these:
git log :/Makefile --
git log -- :/Makefile
depending on what I want.

So the problem is that I can't do:
git blame -- :/Makefile
So blame has to be converted to use pathspec semantics, and should
error out when the pathspec doesn't match the concrete path of a file.
