Yes, I am expecting the changes to be backwards-compatible and I have
tested them on darcs repo only.

The only difference other than handling commas should be requiring
email (anything in angle brackets) in the canonical part of line. My
understanding is that original docs required that too, but
implementation did not (there is no such line in darcs repo
.authorspelling file). Dunno if it was a feature or a bug :-).

Don't anthropomorphize computers. They hate it when you do that.
