My personal opinion is that the AUTHORS files should be dealt with
in the same way that the Linux AUTHORS file is dealt with..  When
someone donates a patch they're welcome to include a diff to the
AUTHORS file, too.  If they want to be in the file, they can.  If
they don't, they don't have to.

Is there any particular reason to change this philosophy?  It works
great for Linux and it's a much bigger project than we are.
