As someone who has maintained a lot of JDK code over the years I have seen
files completely transformed such that the "author" had no hand in what 
is left
except for the name of the file/class.

So I think tracking via 'hg' is much more honest about who did what than
asserting something about an entire file for all posterity and I would not
add @author .. and don't think I ever have.
