This is so appealing in theory and yet so horrible (IMO) in practice.
Git log format does not lend itself to this [*] and its immutability
makes it impossible to correct errors (of which we have plenty) or to
fix mis-attribution when e.g. one of the developers is committing on
behalf of some other contributor who should get credit.
[*] Yes, I know you can use formats to present the log in a whole lot
of flexible ways. But the one thing you can't change is what info is
stored by git in the first place, to which to apply those formats.
