I think we should have all three of github's options -- copying the
range, copying a permalink to it, and a simple link to git blame. If
you think that's too arduous and only really care about copying, then
instead of [...] in the menu you can just put 📋 (or whatever other
glyph) as a small icon inside the range, as opposed to a large
slow-fading side link. Though, I still think the menu is better than
📋, because with 📋 it's still unclear what precisely is being copied.
