So as I understand it, the mailmap file is there mostly to ensure that a
person's changesets are properly collected in 'git shortlog' and such. As
documented on the man page, it is used when a person's name is spelled
differently at different times.

That doesn't appear to be the case here, and shortlog output is correct
already. Given that, do we *really* need to maintain a collection of old
email addresses in the mailmap file? What is the benefit of that?

Thanks,

jon
