Anything in the [ui] username will be put into any changesets created
by that user (e.g. hg commit or hg tag), verbatim, as a permanent record.
In the OpenJDK project we insisted on people setting username to the
OpenJDK name that you registered as, and ONLY that name.
We were concerned about email addresses getting buried in the changesets
and providing too much of a source of valid email addresses for spambots.
Does the [email] settings not work? e.g.
from = your at email.address
Seems like it should.
