`do_pick` is the git-cherry-pick wrapper in git-rebase--interactive
that is used to implement many of the to-do list commands.
Eventually, the complete `do_pick` interface will be exposed to the
user in some form or another and those commands will become simple
aliases for the `do_pick` options now used to implement them.

Add the git-commit option `--reset-author` to the options pool of
`do_pick`. It rewrites the author date and name of the picked commit
to match the committer date and name.

If `--reset-author` is passed to `do_pick`, set the `rewrite` flag
and relay the option to the git-commit command line which creates the
final commit. If `--amend` is not passed as well, the fresh
authorship effect is achieved by the mere fact that we are creating a
new commit.
