I noticed that CVS reports this as part of the version logs:

date: 2000/09/13 05:49:30;  author: cvs;  state: Exp;  lines: +19 -19
date: 2000/09/13 05:46:57;  author: cvs;  state: Exp;  lines: +1 -1
date: 2000/09/13 05:45:48;  author: cvs;  state: Exp;  lines: +29 -7
[....]

This sorta means that 'cvs annotate' is kinda useless since this
'cvs' dude is doing all of the patching.  ;-)  

By comparison, here's what we have in the Perforce logs.  Jarkko
and Sarathy do a good job of including the relevant mail headers
in the logs, which are now in Barrie's CVS version.

(It would be even nicer to see who actually wrote the patch if a single
patch is being applied with each change, but that sounds like a lot of
work.)
