This, btw, won't fix the author/log problem.

You need a seperator in between log and author before digesting them.
Otherwise, things like spelling mistakes and accidental typos in logs, as
well as the usernames you've used in a cvs repository, could become
significant.

IE it'll give:
Log="This patch is good.d" Author: "berlin"
and
Log="This patch is good." Author: "dberlin"
The same ID.

While this example may be a bit silly, I can think of actually
plausible situations where this type of things happens. In fact, it
hit me tonight while converting a repo.

Just throw a separator in between (log + author), and fixing commit
grouping should make the problem go away.
