I find 'git log -p' to almost always be more useful than 'git blame'
when trying to
find out what happened to a file.

What I tend to do is to start with 'git grep $KEYWORD v3.0' (or
2.6.12, 4.0, 5.0 etc)
to see what file mentioned something, and then 'git log -p --
$FILENAME' to see the
commits leading up to the removal.

One bit I find missing though is for 'git log --follow' to track
renames from $FILENAME
to a new location, rather than following where it came from.
