An option to set the author would make git blame more fun

the author, of the commit, should be the rancid user :)  and, rancid-cvs

            git config user.name RANCiD
            git config user.email $USER$MAILDOMAIN

yes I was thinking about this too but in our case we detect change by users not being valid svn/git users. So we just write the username inside the commit message and leave the repository to a single user: rancid.
