No this was just a random sample of the ones sitting at the same
beer garden table that this feature was implemented on.

The en_POLITE is also a nice idea :-) We could split up the work on the
translations amongst all people joining a git meetup.

In fact the whole testsuite should fail after the first 10 tests if you said
please right before running it. So since battery life is short and this
feature so important we did not bother to fix that. We already had
enough please complaints during intermediate commits and entering the
signed-off messages. It is really annoying, you should try this patch! ;-)
And it is especially unuseful when you are committing using git gui.
