Sorry I wasn't clear enough. When "git p4 submit" submits changes from
Git to P4, it also edits the Git history and replaces the Git commits'
authors by the information from the Perforce account submitting the
changes. The advantage is that both the P4 and Git repositories share
the same author information, but in my case I would like to keep in
the Git repository the original authors (because the P4 account I'm
using to submit to P4 is shared by all Git users).

Hope it makes more sense now :)
