git commit --amend --author="Joe Bloe <firstname.lastname@example.org>" allows a
comitter to properly attribute authorship. --date also lets you
change the commit date, so for example your own local commit that
languished without review for weeks can have the commit date updated
before pushing. It might even be possible to have commit hooks modify
commit dates automatically.
