None of the current callers use the refname parameter we pass to their
callbacks. In theory somebody _could_ do so, but it's actually quite
weird if you think about it: it's a ref in somebody else's repository.
So the name has no meaning locally, and in fact there may be duplicates
if there are multiple alternates.

The users of this interface really only care about seeing some ref tips,
since that promises that the alternate has the full commit graph
reachable from there. So let's keep the information we pass back to the
bare minimum.

Pretty sure that isn't right. :)

The preferred way to send a patch with a different author is to have
actual email be "From:" you, but then include a:

  From: Jeff King <peff@peff.net>

as the first line of the body (which git-am will then pick up).
git-send-email will do this for you automatically. Other scripts (like
say, if you're sending the output of format-patch into mutt) used to
have to implement it themselves, but these days we have "format-patch
--from", which should directly output what you want.

The patch itself is flawless, of course. ;)

Indeed that isn't right :-). I try my best to review my patches
diligently before submitting them, but here's an interesting side-story
if you're interested:

I use a script 'git mail' which is essentially doing:

  git format-patch --stdout >mbox && mutt -f mbox

So, by the time that I've reviewed the diff via:

  $ git format-patch --stdout | less

I assume that the patches are ready to send (since, after all, running
'git format-patch' more than once shouldn't change anything.) So, I open
mutt with 'git mail', write my cover letter, and send each of the
patches to the list.

It was during that last phase that I ignored the From: Jeff King
<me@ttaylorr.com>, which I agree with you is certainly incorrect :-).

I was going to ask Junio to fix this up when queuing, but it seems (from
a quick skim of the rest of your review), that we will reach v4, so I'll
see if I can't teach 'git mail' to do the right thing for me.

Obviously ;-).
