Oops, I suppose I've been doing too much Go and C++ lately and am
forgetting `void`.

I don't have a strong opinion between Co-authored-by: and Helped-by:
in this case. Here's my sign-off if you want to retain Co-authored-by:

Indeed. While it might be nice to settle upon a single punctuation
style for these messages, I don't see this as a requirement of the
patch in question. It could, of course, be re-rolled as a two-patch
series in which the second patch addresses the exclamation points, but
fixing the punctuation could also be done later as a follow-up patch
by someone (it doesn't need to be you). So, I don't see a good reason
to hold up the current patch which stands nicely on its own.
