So that we can validate against future misspellings of your name and
email address. It's all about doing validation and stopping the
errors. The current log has over 1,000 typos in the names and emails.
Getting rid of the typos makes it possible to generate clean
statistics.

If you're paranoid get a new gmail address for each commit. From
reading the list of authors I'd say we have about 10 paranoid people
out of 3,840.
