Create a macro ;)

Yeah it depends on the committer. CMD gets credit through
@commandprompt.com, the sig file and a host of other areas but Tom uses
his personal information, so...

I think the commit log isn't actually useful for the "advertising"
portion of this. Users don't read commit logs for the most part.
However, it is an easy way for people who are writing release notes,
press releases, etc... to find the information.
Is it a good place for the information? No.
Is it the easiest place to store it until somebody steps up and creates
a proper way to track it so that it can be desimnated properly
throughout the community? Probably.
We do need a way to track this information.
