I tweaked AUTHORS, re-authored the patch ('git commit --amend
--author=...') to match, and pushed.  Thanks for your first
contribution, and looking forward to more!

By the way, you can set up 'git commit' and 'git send-email' to list
correct authorship, even when you develop on a machine normally tied to
an alternate account, by having this in your project/.git/config (or
globally at ~/.gitconfig):

[user]
    email = preferred address

When the commit is created with the preferred authorship, then 'git
send-email' will inject a 'From:' line to any message sent from a
different email account, which 'git am' then honors in preference to the
actual email headers.
