Once we have a representation of changesets incorporating other
changesets, this can be accommodated just by showing that the mainline
maintainer incorporated a patch written by someone else.
In addition I plan to let you have extra headers in commit messages,
something like in arch, and then these could be extracted by query
tools. So you can imagine a commit with
Committer: mbp at sourcefrog.net
Reviewed-by: john at foo.net
commit message here
and then tools could later extract that.
