Arguably if the user explicitly limited the range, he knows what he's
looking at.  Admittedly, I don't know offhand which options _will_
produce boundary commit indications: there may be some without explicit
range limitation, and we might also be talking about limiting through
shallow repos (git blame on a shallow repo is probably a bad idea in the
first place, but anyway).
