With git shortlog I can replace usernames and email addresses using a 
.mailmap file in the root of the repository. All good.

Yet git log doesn't seem to honour such a .mailmap file. I don't fancy 
specifying a custom format but would at least like a flag to enable this 
behaviour optionally, assuming one isn't already present and I've just 
missed it.

Is there a reason for its absence or would this be desirable behaviour? 
Would like to submit a patch but C's a bit beyond me for now, I couldn't 
even track through to where git log pulls out the author, let alone fix it.

Thanks in advance.
