Why not just use what we currently use for CVS?

Bug 123456: Crash when hitting Ctrl+P - Patch by Foo Bar
< at> r=reviewer a=approver

I know the "Patch by Foo Bar < at>" part is mostly obsoleted
by the --author argument, but I would like tooltips in the annotated
file to contain this whole information as it makes tracking bugs much
easier. So the current tooltips in Loggerhead would need to be hacked to
reflect that (keeping what we currently have in Bonsai would be great).
