There does exist a current mapping from addresses to real
email addresses, that's not the problem.  The concern is that mapping
all your commits back to 1997 to the email you happen to have now is not
going to be correct.  Suppose you worked for one Linux company in 2000
and now work for a different Linux company - you don't want to attribute
the 2000 commits to an email belonging to your new employer.  So we're
probably just going to stick with the more cautious email
