Since committers might change their commit name, or imports from (say)
Subversion to Git often don't set properly the author aliases from before,
it would be nice if it was possible to have a system of aliases so that
seemingly different committers could be folded in a single user in the output.

for mapping of aliases, you can use a .mailmap file (which is baked into Git). See the
