[llvm-dev] Arcanist and git author names

Now that we actually do pushing via git, we can finally give proper 
attribution to patch authors that don't have commit access themselves.

However, if fetching a patch using "arc patch D<number>", arc seems to use 
the Phabricator username as git author name, instead of the realname that 
Phabricator also does know and can display when viewing profiles.

Is there any way to configure arc to get the proper full author name by 
default in "arc patch"? When applying others' patches, navigating to the 
user's profile and copypasting the name to "git commit --amend 
--author='Name <email>'" does work, but it's an unnecessary hurdle, and 
probably leads to inconsistency as everybody won't be doing it.
