    Hmm, I have Matt as the Author in my git repository, but when I did the
    git format-patch and sent this off via quilt, it removed him as the author
    :-(

    I may need to write a script to force the From line to be shown in the
    output files.

    Here's the top of that file in my quilt tree that was produced:

    -------------

    Impact: alignment option for recordmcount.pl script
    --------------


    Ingo, If you pull this from my git tree, it will keep the authorship
    correct.

    Thanks,
