Though I rarely use boundary commits, this one makes the most sense to
me (when I do use them, I just mentally assume that the information in
the boundary line is useless; this is just making that more apparent).

Coincidentally, I recently came across a malformed commit that had a
bogus empty committer name and email. The "git log" pretty-printer omits
the author and committer lines entirely. "blame" will show "(unknown)"
in the name field. I wonder if it should also switch to a formatted
blank as above (but _do_ print the commit).
