And particularly because the "Author" tag gets stripped by subversion, 
I'd recommend adding a line
"Patch by xyz" directly in the comment. That way, we still know the 
original author even in svn.
I try to add this line every time I apply a patch by someone else, 
though I sometimes forget. If it's in the comment already, there's no 
risk of forgetting it.
