rebase am already has this flag to "lie" about the committer date
by changing it to the author date. Let's add the same for
interactive machinery.

Hi Rohit

The handling of ident_split is looking better now but I've got a 
question below about returning vs going to a cleanup section when 
there's an error.

Here (and just below) we return if there is an error but later on we 
`goto out` should we be doing that here to clean something up?
