"useless" is much too strong a description.

If svn blame points to the reformat commit, then simply re-run the blame on
the commit before the reformat.

If total reformats are frequent then this is impractical. If they happen
once in five years then it's not really a big deal. Wrapper scripts can
even be pretty easily written to do this automatically.
