Sounds fair.

Actually I was looking at doing a git-ident thing that will
just compute who git thinks you are.  And then git-commit-tree can
just popen it to share code.  That looks like how the logic has
been accomplished in other places.

Moving parts of git-tag-script into mktag is hard because you
have to generate a flat file to pass to gpg.  And I don't think
I am ready to hard code the call to gpg into mktag, as some other
signing method may come along.  Although that may be the saner

Anyway the git-ident thing is easy and informative for debugging
so I will finish coding that up as soon as I get home.
