Ah, am I the only one that finds that a bit counterintuitive to the
point of wanting to submit a patch to change it?

If you've created a tag you're the *author* of that tag, the
author/committer distinction for commit objects is there for e.g.
rebases and applying commits via e.g. git-am.

We don't have a similar facility for tags (you have to push them
around directly), but we *could* and in that case having a
Tag-Committer as well well as a Tagger would make sense.

Junio, what do you think?
