Slightly OT:
Note that the "author" info is only semi readable from CVS. It contains
just the user part of the email address (in my case - "lkml" for spam
reasons - hardly a unique identifier). I'm told that under BK it has the
full email, so I'm not sure where that stands there.

This does mean that under CVS, this info is not searchable, nor even
guarenteed unique.
