I agree this is a bigger, separate issue that we should address, but it
shouldn't prevent us from doing what improvements we can to the mailmap.

I think this would be a fine solution.  If folks think the hashed
mailmap would be better, I can resend that, or if we like the
URL-encoded option, that shouldn't be too difficult to implement.

I do appreciate you taking the time to bring this up since I think this
is an important issue to address and it's come up a couple of times.  I
hope that this time we can come up with some sort of improvement with
the mailmap we're willing to take.
