So we would stop passing mailmap string_list along down to map_user(),
and the mailmap file (or blob) would be read the first time it's
needed, and stored in a static global variable in mailmap.c. I think
I'm OK with that because I don't think it would make sense to have
multiple instances of a mailmap string_list in the same git-command
Who would be responsible for deleting the string_list ? It would
either be done in each command, or done through a atexit(3) registered
function (but then, why would we even care about cleaning it up?).
