`deep-blame` doesn't support renamed files

See original GitHub issue


  1. Visit
  2. Click Deep Blame button
  3. See 404 page

The file is currently source/options.html but was renamed twice.

The link we generate should point to the file that existed at the time: extension/options/index.html

The regular blame follows renames, but I’m not sure we (deep-blame) can.

Hmm, That would not work if the PR had more than 100 files No?
