I didn't link to Bart's post in that thread as it doesn't have code in it.

The aforelinked 34912 is broken in the archives in two ways: the
assignment to AUTHOR_NAME on line 3 needs to be double quoted, and the
zsh.org archives don't show the attachments' filenames (or even delimit
the attachments).

I suppose I could throw it on my github account and reference that, but
perhaps those scripts belong somewhere in the zsh repository itself?
(e.g., in Etc/ or a new dir devscripts/ or something).  They don't
really have any use anywhere else, no other project that I know of
embeds ezmlm X-Seq numbers in commit messages.
