I don't think it's bad style at all! There is zero drama. This is
just a piece of software we're working on together. I make bugs too.

Either the bug is important enough to tease someone a little, or it's
not. The information is easily available from svn blame as you
mentioned so it's not like you would be letting out a secret.

Ok, but I think it would be fine for you to mention who caused it as
well, if you felt the need to.

And you could include the original rev. Or not.

Whatever is easiest and feels good. :)
