I think it could be good that git commit reflets the real patch author. 
(This could be useful for Ohloh by the way :-))
But may be you could find it useful for internal process to know who 
really comitted it, and in this case, it could be better to add a tag 
'c=' for committer, and git author is the real patch author.
