I believe all relevant tools use the From: header (unless it's
overridden by a From: in the message body). I think this is how Linus
originally wanted it to work -- in the first linux-kernel commit his
e-mail is [hidden email], and I seem to recall him saying
something along the lines of this being a feature: others could see
which machine he commited on, and the e-mail should really be
considered more of a unique identifier than an actual real e-mail
Not sure if the policy has changed since then, though.
