We currently have a way to link drupal.org node ids in cvs commit comments
(e.g., 'Applied patch from issue #12345', which will appear as a link on
drupal.org).  Were we to do something similar with drupal user names, we
could do tracking.  E.g., 'Applied patch from %dries'.  Then we could
explicitly track this sort of contribution.  Of course, we could simply
search for user names without this type of selector, but there would be more
false matches.
