Not a problem.  I hadn't until very recently completely understood the
format of the .mailmap file (in that the correct items are always to be
on the left), so I didn't think anything of it when reviewing the
commit.  Perhaps I should come up with a patch to the documentation to
make it easier for past me to understand.

I only recently realized that with my transition to a separate mail
server (in September), the crustytoothpaste.ath.cx address doesn't
actually work, and when perusing the output of git log, realized that it
was the wrong way around.
