commit-email.pl adds spurious From "email@domain.tld" line

commit-email.pl does:

    if (defined $stdout)
        $formatted_date = strftime('%a %b %e %X %Y', localtime())
        push(@head, "From $mail_from $formatted_date\n");

I think this is not only unnecessary, but wrong. Not all MTAs remove that
spurious From-line, and if they don't (at least mini_sendmail doesn't), some
receiving MTAs get confused and lose the headers (at least MS Exchange

I commented that piece of code out, and the Outlook user began seeing the
headers they had missed.

This is subversion-tools-1.5.1.
