[patch] Use /etc/mailname if available

Bzr currently attempts to guess the name and e-mail address of the user
(if not configured).  Unfortunately, the e-mail address has only the
hostname, not the FQDN of the machine (cf. the thread "Slow Startup?"
from April 14) because OS/X does not have a sane default DNS resolution
setup.  As such, it can hardly ever give a valid e-mail address.

In many cases, /etc/mailname will contain the correct domain name for
e-mail addresses.  Hopefully, this should obviate the configuration step
for some users.  Attached is a short patch to this effect.
