Using the From: address specified in the body

Hi there,

I see that some emails with patches have a From: field in the body[1],
and I'm wondering if there's any reason for not using that (when
available, of course) as the patch submitter.  Well, now that I think of
it, one could argue that the submitter is whoever sent the email, but
maybe it would be useful to have a 'author' field on Patch so that we
can properly represent cases where submitter != author?
