I don't think get_author_ident_from_commit can do so on demand due to
the subshell issue I mentioned. So you'd have to generate the pick
script on inclusion of git-sh-setup, whether the includer wants to call
the function or not.
I wonder if we should simply generate these at build time and store them
in the script.
I'm also not sure that saving one process invocation is worth spending a
lot of thought cycles on. Maybe somebody on Windows could run a
filter-branch with the patch I just sent and measure whether it even
makes a difference.
