This isn't that hard. We only need one copy of commit-email.pl. I'll
pull out Storable and also skip Data::Dumper. I simple ~10 line subroutine
will replace the functionality I wanted.

The original intent of using Storable was to make a copy of the hash
that contains the information for each project defined from the command
line. Given that errors may arise from later modifications to the
script to add additional hash elements for additional functionality, I
thought it would be best to make a clone of the hash using a standard
method instead of having to initialize the hash twice in two different
places in the script (much less error prone).

In any case, expect a patch later today or tomorrow to take out
