Good point.

It worked.  I made a trivial change to Misc/NEWS and checked it in.  I then
ran "svn blame NEWS" to see what it showed.  This took approximately
forever.  Can I assume this is one thing svn is always going to be pretty
slow at?  I use cvs annotate frequently.  Is there a faster alternative in
svn to identify who did what?

I notice that you use my real name (including spaces).  I doubt we have any
code that munches on annotated listings, but it seems that for the sake of
script writers' sanity it would be better to elide spaces or replace them
with underscores so the annotated user is a single "word":
