Re: [PATCH/RFC] sequencer.c: record revert/cherry-pick commit with trailer lines

Please don't, unless you are keeping the current "the effect of
commit X relative to its parent Y was reverted" writtein in prose,
which is meant to be followed up with a manually written "because
..." and adding this as an extra footer that is meant solely for
machine consumption.  Of course reversion of a merge needs to say
relative to which parent of the merge it is undoing.

Unlike the "revert" change above, this probably is a good change, as
a"(cherry-pickt-from: X)" does not try to convey anything more or
anything less than such a standard looking trailer and it is in
different shape only by historical accident.  But people's scripts
may need to have a long transition period for this change to happen.
